HE colors have dried on the palette ; the artist has 
folded his easel. It is done — Microcosm, the 
portrait of our little world. Gay lights of laugh- 
ter shade into the gray of sighs, and the tender 
purple of memories, composite of all the glori- 
ous days of '24.

SOU are soon going out into a chaotic world, the problems of which 
you must help to solve. It is my hope that you may have gained 
through your association with Simmons College something that 
will make you mindful of your responsibilities and thoughtful as 
well as resourceful in the assuming of them. 

To be a constructive force in the midst of disintegrating influences your 
life must be well-ordered, rational and wholesome, — that is, it must be a 
life of principle. To achieve this, in turn, there must be the self -discipline 
without which every effort toward progress becomes futile. With discipline 
of yourself you may conquer the world. Your college years should have 
begun to teach you what you must inevitably learn — that the education of 
the will is necessary for all right living, and that the existence that is 
"carried about by every wind of fashionable doctine" is useless to itself and 
to others. 

Strive then for the educated will, that you may face life bravely, calm 
and unafraid in the midst of changing circumstances. You will find that it 
simplifies our complex modern existence, and helps us to find happiness in 
the few fundamental things which are really necessary for our well-being.

"Syl," "Sylie" 

"Though little, she was fierce." 

Syl's used to large cities and she's a firm believer in young: Ameri- 
can independence, but since she's come to the large and conservative 
city of Boston, she's had to curb her "wild western" ideas. She's 
nevertheless a hustler, bubVing over with plans, helpful hints, always 
a life saver. Her numerous picnics and feeds are only outnumbered 
by her frequent trips to North Hall telephone.

Elizabeth Adams 

"Betty 7 

"When did morning ever break 
And find such beaming eyes awake?" 

In trying to find Betty's one ambition we had to compromise on a 
half dozen or so ; she wants to be a dietitian in a hospital, but we often 
find her at Schrafft's blissfully disregarding "calorific value." She may 
open a tea room in Bangor, Maine ! We're certain the morsels she cooks 
would bring praise from Fannie Farmer ! 

To see Betty dance, swim and skate you wouldn't think she knew 
a calorie from a Paramecium ! We're sure she will succeed as mistress 
of her tea room, unless — oh, well, we can't predict, but often a frat pin 
holds a world of prophecy in itself.

Florence W. Adams 


"Thou, in our wonder and astonishment, 
Hast built thyself a life-long monument." 

Florence's forte is walking right through and past difficulties. 
Anyone who can calmly smile when asked to embark from Newburyport 
in time to arrive at Boylston Street at 6 :30 a. m. is our idea of a 1924 
model. To be willing is miraculous, but to smile at the prospect is 
nothing short of stunning. 

We feel assured that in Florence's future tea room, when the help 
fail to arrive, or the supplies are snowed in or possibly the janitor goes 
on a spree, Florence will merely don her stiffest apron and her calmest 
manner, and make things fly faster herself than the whole force put to- 
gether could do.

Grace Linwood Alger 

"What a strange thing is man, and what a stranger is woman." 

How does she do it? As if an intensively extensive course in Li- 
brary Science were not enough — she manages to retain sufficient interest 
and courage to include her Saturdays, too, and take two extra courses 
at B. U. And she is full of all kinds of enthusiasm from concerts and 
Simmons, to the intricacies of book-binding machinery and cumulative

Alice Gertrude Allen 

"1 tell you, she'll make her mark." 

'Tis said that some girls in college think only of their marks. Put 
in the singular form, this might apply to Alice. In spite of that fact, 
however, she has stuck by the Library School, but perhaps her efficient 
waiting on table for the past three years is a kind of preparatory course 
for the future, in itself.

Elsie M. Allen 

"What's Holyoke's loss is Simmons' gain." 

Blond hair, big eyes with a twinkle, calm unruffled manner in the 
face of the innumerable "condensed" transcripts, ready smile — and the 
sum total equals Elsie. She's one of the valuable transferred additions 
to the ranks of '24, and about ninety-nine per cent, of us wish that we 
might know her better. The other one per cent, are her pals here at 
college. If you're lucky, you're one of those few.

Amelia Isabella Amerise 


"The little nameless, unremembercd acts of kindness and of love." 

Probably no one will ever know how many of these unselfish acts 
Amelia has performed, for she always does them so quietly. She is so 
full of fun, with even a bit of deviltry in her, that you might not sus- 
pect her of so much generosity until you took a good look at those big, 
sympathetic eyes. And capable — well, when she says, "All right, I'll 
do it," you know it will be done— just right, too. Mell has just one 
trouble ; she finds it absolutely impossible to giggle without a siren at- 
tachment. That's another one of the things we love about her, though.

"She hath power Cleopatra well might ercuy.' 

If there is anything on earth that Fran can't do, and do well, we 
would like to know it. No matter whether it's making hats, designing 
dresses, dancing, or just doing lessons, she is right there. Even all 
these things could not keep her busy, so, in between she went to the 
Mass. General to assist in research work. We're looking to Fran to 
help spread the fame of '24, and we all know we won't look in vain.

"/ am sure, care's an enemy to life." 

Really it is a shame about these day girls — we don't see half enough 
of them even when they honor us with a one year visit at Pete, as Bes- 
sie did. We know a few things about her ; she can dribble a ball down 
the field in hockey, do the latest dances, take any side in an argument, 
and get good marks from her instructors either from the front row or 
from the 50c seats!

Eva Alice Band 

"My mind to me a kingdom is." 

We of the dormitories complain of lack of time to study and groan 
over tests, themes and assignments. Here is a commuter who finds 
time, in spite of the narrow gauge, to get all A's, or sd nearly so that 
to argue about it is mere quibbling. We thought that, like Samson, per- 
haps Eva's strength was in her hair, but she bobbed that and still the 
A's roll in. For our own consolation we mutter, "Oh, well, it's a gift," 
but 'way down deep we know it's real BRAINS.

"Dot" "Deebe" 

"Nobody ought to have been able to resist her coaxing manner." 

Deebe is our class treasurer — and incidentally a very strong advo- 
cate of the U. S. Mail Service. These special deliveries that fly back 
and forth must make the U. S. Government feel glad they invented that 
10 cent stamp. Deebe's a very conscientious worker and quite the most 
efficient secretary Simmons could wish for in all its graduates. One 
hears little whispers about June, 1926 ! We wonder just what is going 
to happen then. It seems that losing a ring proves the old saying, "It 
isn't the gift that counts, it's the sentiment behind it."

Eva Bayard 


"Procrastination is the thief of time." 

But Eva in this case is the law breaker — she twists poor Father 
Time around her fingers until the poor man does not know where he is. 
And like her sister, Eva manages to get there just the same with a fair 
sprinkling of "A's." 

Everyone likes her and we are sure that her friends at the settle- 
ments or wherever she is going to give her services, will agree that her 
wholesome views of life are just what they need most to help them

Hannah Ruth Bayard 

"A dillar, a dollar, a ten o'clock scholar 
What makes you come so soon? 
You used to come at ten o'clock 
And now you come at noon." 

Haste is undignified, Hannah believes. It also makes waste, and 
Hannah is an economical sout. She does not waste a minute, no, in- 
deed ! There is not one minute to spare between her several classes and 
appointments. In fact, they often overlap. 

And the irony of fate—the cruel ones in authority gave her a first 
hour class in shorthand. 

Her themes may be a week late but she gets her "A." No wonder 
she comes out on top since she goes in last.

"Her airs, her manners, all who saw admired." 

Edith has two vocations and a genius. The two vocations are look- 
ing after Al Hayward and dissecting weird beasts in Biology and the 
genius is being serenely happy. If you don't know these three things 
about Edie B., you really don't know her for she's usually doing all three 
at the same time. 

And while we're talking about her, let's tell her how much we all 
admire and envy that sublime pluck of hers that carries her past every 
obstacle — even exams in bed.

"J can teach sugar to slip down your throat a million ways." 

And a Golden-Haired Maiden was of their number and great were 
the Giggles thereof. Ill-temper, she knew not ; neither did she know the 
terms Efficiency, Severity nor Blue-ness. Now behold this Maiden had 
an Ultimate Ideal — the Instruction of the Young in the Rites of the 
Religion of Domestic, Scientist. Mightily did she strive toward her Aim 
but her great Weakness of the Spirit brought her Aim almost to De- 
feat. This Maiden could not find it in her Heart to instruct the Young 
in the Art of Preparing Food except it were Flavored with Chocolate.

Fudge also.

Grace Beck 

"Nods and Becks and wreathed smiles." 

There's only one objection that instructors have to Grace. She's so 
hard to find. Roll call proceeds. "Miss Beck, Miss Beck?" Instructor 
hastily looks over class. Sees a crack one inch wide, sees that half 
filled with a very, very diminutive person, and marks Grace present. 
Grace is absolutely our smallest edition, and we do hope that, next 
June, she'll avoid a position connected with filing. It would be a hor- 
rible but inevitable catastrophe if her employer, in closing up the office, 
should absentmindedly lock her into one of the drawers of the files. 
Knowing Grace's unflurried manner, we predict that she'd curl up and 
philosophically prepare to spend the night there.

Margaret Bellinger 



"The gods made her small." 

But what she lacks in size she makes up in volume — of conversation. 
Life is one naval post after another for Bob. She has even hung her 
prophylactic in China. With so many things to talk about, no wonder 
her soup gets cold. Bacteriology is her pastime, but those pretty blue 
eyes have seen more than can be seen through a microscope. Does 
anyone know Ralph?

"But, oh, she dances such a way 
No sun upon an Easter-day

We wonder, when we look at Florence's deep and devilish dimples, 
and hear some one murmur that she comes from Asbury Park, if she 
didn't win first prize at one of her home town's annual baby shows ! 
Certainly the general effect is very alluring, as various students at the 
U. of Penn., Princeton. Dartmouth and Annapolis will testify. 

But be not deceived, Florence has her serious moments too ; witness 
the A's in History, and the struggle with the Underwood Bookkeeping

"This strange disease of modern life, with its sick hurry.'"'' 

Martha commutes, but she doesn't believe in being bothered with 
the subway and elevated, so she lives where she can start at the top of 
Parker Hill and coast down into our back yard. Also Mart is one of 
those people who elect court reporting. Some day when you're called 
up for speeding in your Rolls Royce, the stenog. who gets the words 
down before you say them will be Martha.

snap the curtain, Jerry, and make 'em run. And speaking of systems 
— how she manages to get in swimming lessons, dancing lessons, and 
dramatic costumes, to say nothing of such trifles as home work, is a 
mystery to us.

"Cookery is become an art, a noble science." 

There's something about the combination of a turned-up nose, a 
broad and beaming smile and curly hair that just makes you beam right 
back at the fortunate owner of all these blessings. Gertrude has 'em all 
and, for that reason, her four years here have been full of friends, and 
good times. Most of us wouldn't know Gertrude unless she were adorned 
in the stiffest, starched-est of aprons. Like all commuters, she hasn't 
been able to give us enough of her time so that all of us could really 
know her, but we're thankful for the glimpses we've had.

"Every hairpin has its place. 1 

Mary is a Household Ec (er). She has, therefore, never taken a

she has established a system for herself. As it appears to an outsider : 
( Personal) 

A quiet, Quaker maid — peace and good will — as trim and immacu- 
late at 4.05 P. M. as at 8 A. M. — given to thought before utterance.

A place for everything — and everything always in place — cleanli- 
ness (even under the rugs.)

"A friend in need is a friend indeed.' 

That's Kay. There's nothing she will not do for you if it is in her 
power. She is one of those fortunate persons who always know what 
to say and what to do. She is glad when you are glad — and makes you 
glad when you are not. You can go to her with your troubles and al- 
ways be sure of sympathy and understanding. You can go to her and 
be sure to have a lot of fun. 

There's nothing conventional about Kay, as we all realized when she 
demonstrated the color, yellow. Didn't our mouths water and didn't we 
wish we were going to be in on the luscious looking food?

and has, from the time she showed '24 what real brains are, in our men- 
tality test Freshman year, to her walking off with the first prize in the 
Atlantic Essay contest. Her posters, her costumes, her Review articles 
— her absentmindedness — you know them all, for her praises have been 
sung all over Simmons. We're all expecting great things from Connie 
some day, and when she's famous we'll say with a burst of pride, "She 
was a classmate of mine at Simmons."

'When shall we three meet again! 

The best way to treat the Simmons Library Triumvirate from 
Waltham is to arrange them alphabetically by name under one heading 
with "see" and "see also" references. The Triumvirate was formed 
Freshman year and not even the H. W. Wilson-R. R. Bowker contro- 
versy has succeeded in breaking it up as yet. The future alone looks 
dark, unless something can be done about having three presidents of

"She moves a goddess 
She looks a queen."

She has one special attraction that no one of us will ever forget 
and one which we all envy her for — that wonderful "school girl com- 
plexion"^ — -we would not be surprised to hear that Agnes decided to or- 
ganize and manage a Red Mountain Health Resort in joint company 
with a famous specialist — who guarantees to give the patients that color 
that Agnes alone possesses. 

All the bells ring for Agnes, door-bells, outside phone, inside phone, 
and breakfast bells. She answers them all with the exception of the 
breakfast bell ! 

She is keeping us guessing as to whether she will settle in Massa- 
chusetts or New York after this year. One thing we are sure of ; her 
home will be a model one and her children will be "right well raised."

"Oh lady, nobility is thine and thy form is the reflection of thy nature." 

Brownie ! One would have to search long for a more suitable cog- 
nomen — Huge brown eyes, olive skin, sparkling teeth, and a million 
dollar smile! Just try to find a more heavenly combination in Africa 
or even Poquonock, U. S. A. During Freshman and Sophomore years, 
Brownie lived quite within herself. Junior year she made a little peep — 
and with a long blast, it suddenly burst upon us all what a valuable per- 
son she was to be to us Senior Year. Helen's capabilities are quite with- 
out end — anything from a most rollicking sort of pussy at Senior House- 
warming to a most serious and dignified Student Gov't Vice-President. 
It would be difficult indeed to estimate "24"s love and admiration for

"A word from the wise is sufficient." 

When the votes for "Most Talkative" were counted, about the only 
name that didn't appear was Lillian's. She holds the world's champion- 
ship for absorption of knowledge without a sound. It really amounts 
to genius in her case, but when you get her started talking, prick up 
your ears. You're likely, no, not likely, certain, to hear a good many 
gems that will considerably enrich the desert of your examination 
papers. She it was who accomplished the almost impossible feat of get- 
ting an A in an English course without making even one recitation.

Does that sound familiar to you? We just know it does if you've

four busy years, not to mention being a very efficient young social-serv- 
ice student as well. All kinds of superlatives apply to Billy — such as 
best looking, best dressed, best tempered, and so on. Billy, being gifted 
with sense, takes the "gifts of the Gods" in the right way. That's one 
reason why Billy has such stacks of friends and admirers in Boston, 
New York, and points between.

of her vibrates with energy and she just works and works and ihen 
works some more. And yet she always seems to have time to stop for 
a friendly chat or a sympathetic word, or maybe a bit of advice, (if it 
is asked for). Yes, Jo is one of these busy people who never seems to 
complain about never having time, but just makes it.

May Edith Campbell 


''The Campbells are coming." 

We wonder why May blushes so frequently and so intensely. Surely 
it can't be for her work for that's always the height of all that's good, 
and it couldn't possibly be for her actions out in the good old town of 
Newtonville, for knowing our demure May we're sure, or at least we're 
almost sure, there could be nothing blushable there. So the mystery 
remains unsolved, and in the meantime, she continues to get beautifully 
rosy whenever anything unexpected arises, from being called on to re- 
cite, to the eternal serving of teas which the Household Ec-ers do so

"She is pretty to walk with. 
And witty to talk with. 
And pleasant, too, to think on." 

Everyone knows Ray as a "Good Sport," always ready to do what 
the "Crowd" does, except when it interferes with her daily athletic prac- 
tice in her favorite exercise — catching the 4.57 before 4.59. 

Maybe it's practice in bluffing the venerable Father Time that's 
given her such an uncanny skill in getting by with ease in every class. 
However, she has a brilliant future to contemplate. Ray will be the 
perfect Sec. of '24 if unceasing note-taking in Government is the test.

"Oh give me new figures! I can't go on dancing 
The same that were taught me ten seasons ago." 

For her the dance hath charm and lo ! she can dance all night 
and get "A" in an exam the next morning:. Mildred will make a 
wonderful librarian but she doesn't always intend to hand out 
Shakespeare and E. M. Hull to the thirsting public. If you want 
to make her blush, ask her if "The Brute" is on reserve.

"And soon as a dance has come to a close 
Another begins and each merrily goes." 

Charlie is our danseuse, worthy of being writ up, to say noth- 
ing of being "writ down." Few and far between have been her 
public appearances at Simmons, but anyone who has seen her in the 
locker rooms at noon-time can vouch for her ability to present any- 
thing from the "Old Gray Mare" to a "perfect Watteau." 

The cares of the Sec. course have rested on Charlie's shoulders 
about as much as the proverbial water on the back of the proverbial 
duck. Maybe it's just luck, but more likely it's those great appeal- 
ing eyes that are responsible for the fact that, though she never 
studies, she gets away with A's and B's beautifully.

"Squeak," a nickname never to be fathomed! And yet,— when 
one considers, 'tis appropriate — for "Cile" is so quiet most of the 
time, that if it were not for the miraculous and choice bits of art 
that she produces at odd moments — ( these Library girls are so 
rushed, my deah! Classification and Cataloguing are such fatiguing 
courses!) and her loud protestations— "All men are conceited," we 
would scarcely know that she could hobnob as glibly in French as 
in "ye native tongue," not to mention printing the Daily News on 
the Bulletin Board in beautiful square letters.

"To be calm in the face of difficulties shows great skill." 

"Tickie" is, and always will be, a source of envy to us. She 
has that maddening ability to learn a great deal in a very short 
time. While the rest of us sit tearing our hair over exams, "Tickie" 
takes a nap or concocts some fudge — or does nothing at all. We 
ask you if that isn't enough to try the soul of any poor plodding 
student, specially since "Tickie" gets the most gorgeous marks. 
And besides that gift, she has a real genius for being able to stay 
out of classes for a few weeks or so and, apparently, not being one 
whit overwhelmed by the mountains of work she must make up. 
Again we mutter the age-old question — how do you get that way?

When Helen gets out her cook-book, unfold your napkins and

duces so well. Perhaps it's living at home that develops such skill 
with the humble gas range. We only wish she were one of our 
dorm, crowd, both for the sake of having her with us more, and. 
(oh, sadly materialistic motive) for the wonderful eats that would 
be brought to us from the mystic temples on the third floor.

"Punctuality is one of earth's primest virtues." 

When Ruth came to us from Mount Holyoke with her super- 
leisurely manner, she had us completely fooled. We have to admit 
the joke's on us when we see her stroll into Miss Davis' class with 
her work ahead of time! At 2:05 the earth apparently swallows all 
trace of Ruth until 8:45 the next morning, but we understand that 
Simmons is running in close competition with other interests. If 
that's the case, we're glad that Ruth's impartial and gives us at 
least half her time.

"It is a woman's privilege to change her mind." 

That's why Agnes left us in favor of Skidmore last year. She 
started out bravely at Simmons determined to devote her life to 
being an efficient Secretary, only to decide that a Household Eco- 
nomics education would be better adapted to her needs. Even Tech 
men must eat! 

We're glad that memories and associations brought back our 
slim, attractive girl-of-the-pretty-clothes. We wonder though if 
she's going to change her mind sometime and say, "I don't" instead 
of the conventional "I do." Something about the interest she dis- 
plays when anyone mentions recipes and breakfasts and luncheon 
sets tells us that we can be pretty sure she won't.

Indeed Craigie is quite the reverse. Whenever we want our

welcome "helping hand." She has been socially prominent in class 
affairs since her debut at Simmons four happy years ago, and now 
she is 24's "wholesome" president. One would hardly think that 
this infant could hold down such an office, but, folks, just try and 
find anyone who could do it better. And, fair readers, this secret 
we will impart to you: When Craigie makes speeches, "she thinks!"

"She does little kindnesses which most people leave undone, or despise." 

Dottie's one of the people you mention first when you're brag- 
ging about our class. She's usually serene and adored by Freshmen 
but the only time we did not see her happy was when she was burn- 
ing the candle at both ends, studying for her "blankety-blank 
Dutch!" We may be surprised, however, to learn that in the future 
Dottie has her library shelves neatly arranged with German books. 
As a librarian, Dottie would excel, but we all think that she will 
find greater pleasure in becoming an expert housekeeper and cata- 
loging her recipes rather than handing out Laura Jean Libbey to 
an eager public.

Enthusiasm is Jay's middle name, and she has run dances, com- 
forted weeping Freshmen, and planned Senior House warming — 
and Heaven knows what more — in the most delightful manner. We 
know Jay's Freshmen, not to mention the rest of us, will hate to be

"I've now got the music-book ready 
Do sit up and sing like a lady." 
Lolly won our hearts Freshman and Sophomore years, and after 
that, she certainly captured both our hearts and voices. She can 
lead them anywhere she desires — even to making us sing somewhere 
near together in the Refectory, which is quite some Herculean task. 
We can't decide whether Lolly prefers an aeroplane, an automo- 
bile or a bicycle as a means of locomotion, but our guess favors a 
two- wheeled device of some kind. Perhaps a motorcycle, if the 
weather isn't rainy. 

All in all, we know we owe our "Best Sport" more than we can 
ever tell and we try to show it when we sing with her and express 
it when we sing to our own Lolly.

Cally's been coming up through the ranks, as 'twere. She's 
held about all the offices there are in the Maine Club, and this year 
she's its very capable president. Cally's our version of a regular 
good scout — very good natured, real sense of humor, likely to come 
forth with the most unexpected remarks, and "simply adores" 

When the rest of us rush pell-mell for the mail, Cally sits calmly 
in her room — she knows she'll get one.

— "and all that bug dust"— oh, hello. Jadie! Who would recog- 
nize this auburn-haired maiden as the quiet and composed Fresh- 
man of four years ago? Just see what Simmons has done for her. 
Once, blushingly shy, now the girl who sings, "Take back your 
heart, I've ten already." Jadie intends to be a librarian. Where? 
Oh, some place far from home so she may travel back and forth on 
the train, because you do meet so many nice people that way — 
especially if you can make the journey interesting by using a 
woman's only weapon — as Jadie can so easily. We think she may 
switch over to architecture. Such taste for erecting a stage that 
will support any and all of us, not to mention flights of steps, would 
be wasted among shelves of books.

Ruth Lillian Daw 

"Though small, her voice was ever sweet." 

If you want to start a good-sized argument, go and pick out 
Ruth to argue with. No, it isn't she's especially argumentative, but 
she has such a tiny little voice that you're sure to win, if only 
because you can make the most noise. Poor Ruth does hate the 
classes where they call the roll. She always has to answer, too, for 
she's never absent, late, or anything but what a good future secre- 
tary should be. Here's hoping she doesn't get an employer who is 
slightly deaf. It would only make Ruth feel at home, though, to 
have him say, "Could you speak a little louder, please?"

Demure Phobe came to us from Rochester her Junior year. She

are unavoidably absent. Phobe spends a good deal of her time way

Dennis, but ah! What about Junior Prom week-end?

"Give us a taste of your Quality.' 


Instead of aiming to be a librarian, we think Marian should have

us humble glee club members listen to enviously. All four years, she's 
been a faithful member of that hard-working crew and has helped to 
make it the shining light it is in Simmons Society. 

We wish she had come around more often for we haven't had half 
the chance we wanted, to really know her. There must be a reason 
somewhere, but you can't find out from Marian who it is.

late, we never see her unless we search the innermost recesses of the

Dotty might, if she wished, lay claim to the title of "class inva- 
lid." Ever since Freshman year she has been pursued by garms and 
misfortunes of all kinds, but she always comes up smiling. And, oh, 
that smile ! Since she bobbed her hair she looks like a little Dutch 
girl, with pink cheeks that become even rosier when anyone asks her 
where gutta percha is, or what Dr. Eldridge's first name is. Poor child, 
she's always being teased, but that's one of the penalties for being so 
good-natured. Dot says insurance is going to be her line when she 
graduates, but unless her course in Child Care is for statistical pur- 
poses it looks suspicious.

with the most amiable, unruffled disposition in the world, and you have 
a more or less adequate picture of the recipient of a certain titian-

"The more haste, the less speed." 

If neatness and accuracy are the essentials of a good secretary, 
Helen might as well cease to study — she has nothing more to learn. 
The worst of it is, she apparently makes no effort to attain these longed 
for qualities ; like Topsy, they just grew. And if you tease her about 
them, she blushes beautifully and murmurs something about being "so 
slow." Now, we ask you! Imagine any one who reported at the Sec- 
retarial conference saying that ! You know, it's always said that a 
woman means just the opposite of what she says, and if Helen's truth- 
ful, she must prove that old saying to be right.

than Wheaton and we're mighty glad that she decided to join our class

Grace will give you excellent advice, especially as to the latter product. 
She knows more about them than even the Dormitory Chef ! If you're

and the complete recovery is insured by the beaming smile that goes 
with it.

Mildred Doris Gilliatt 


''Hang worry — care will kill a cat.' 

Isn't it funny the things some people worry about? First, Doris 
bobbed her hair and then she put it up because — most foolish of ideas — 
she thought we wouldn't think her dignified enough ! As though we 
could think her anything else. 

Then she'll worry about there being positively no chance of getting 
a man for the next dance — and lo, she brings one for herself and 
usually provides a couple for the less fortunate among us. 

She does love history, though. And why not? Doesn't she help 
make it by cutting those beautiful and artistic stencils every week ? 
H. G. Wells could do no more.

Caroline Gordon 

"Life's a jest and all things show it. 
I thought so once and now I know it." 

Callie just can't help it — she might want to be cross but that grin 
just won't stay under. 

Tinkle, tinkle goes the second floor bell. There's a flurry — "Miss 
Gordon, telephone !" Agonized cry from Cal — "You go, Faith, and find 
out who it is." Why all the worry, Callie? This system of team-work 
has been going on ever since Callie and her side-kick began appearing 
on the Simmons Refectory Stage, which, as all followers of the stage 
know, takes you back to Methusaleh, or somewhere around there.

Ina Granara 

"The true knight of learning, the world holds him dear," 

Serenely, sedulously, sanely, steadily scientific is Ina, as far as her 
courses are concerned. But no one could be less scientific than Ina in 
her off moments, while driving a Ford, losing her purse, missing ap- 
pointments or trains, or otherwise amusing herself. However, when 
we think it over, perhaps all this is just the passion for experiment 
getting the better of her. She must have an innate longing to see how 
far she could tempt Fate without suffering any too-damaging conse- 
quences. One thing she need never worry about — that's marks. Ina's 
instructors forget there are any letters in the alphabet other than the 
first, when they ccme to consider her grades. Maybe if we all had that 
worry off our shoulders, we'd feel like experimenting along other lines,

Marguerite Greenshields 

"Nothing could daunt her nor force her submission." 

Where's Marguerite? With Helen. There's the story of a college 
friendship in four words. They're as inseparable as the prongs of a 
fork, and just as well matched. 

We all watched Marguerite with awe when she gaily navigated the 
treacherous waters of a trial balance with her left hand. Most of us 
found accounts figures bad enough to handle with both hands, but Mar- 
guerite seemed to sail calmly through — all this being but our frivolous 
way of telling her how much we admire her courage and stick-to-itive-

Emily Gregory 


"Is't near dinner-time? I would 't were." 

All of us have ten fingers, but none of us can make them produce 
that marvelous, pep-inducing syncopation that Emmy evokes from any- 
thing bearing the most distant relationship to a piano. If Saint Peter 
knows what's good for the angels, when Emmy gets to Heaven, he'll 
give her a piano instead of a harp. She doesn't need a halo — she 
already has one, bestowed by popular vote, for anyone who so uncom-- 
plainingly plays for everything from between-course singing in the Re- 
fectory to dancing, at all hours, should have a diamond-set halo right 
here on earth. The only reason we don't give her one is that such a 
very tiny person with such a huge crop of hair really has enough on her 
shoulders without one.

Florence Louise Gustafston "Gus," "Gusty" 

''An earnest mind fast gains its end." 

We really can't understand how any one with so tender a heart and 
so loving a nature can bear to cut up cats. But then if we took the 
General Science course, we might explain the combination. Anyhow, 
we'll take on any bets offered that Gussie would never cut up a live 
cat, — no, not even for Dr. Mark himself. In spite of the daily trials 
and tribulations of commuting, she has survived the four years with 
enough good-will-towards-men (or better, women) to cheer her envied 
dorm friends by bringing them bits of the country in the shape of flow- 
ers from her garden.

Anna Linnea Haggkvist 


"Sweet, simple and girlish." 

It's so deceptive to look about twelve, and to be a senior in college. 
There really ought to be a law against it. But Anna's so consistent 
about it, that you can't condemn her — she even went in for children's 
diseases last year, making herself a living example of the folly of try- 
ing to keep up appearances. She does try to look older by wearing 
those big round glasses, but it doesn't work — she looks just as little- 
sisterish as ever.

Clara Eleanor Hall 


"These Halls of learning." 

"Miss Hall? Oh, yes, right over there!" Eleanor has the distinc- 
tion of being one of the few remembered by Dr. Harley during the first 
week of psychology. And we shall remember her for giving the first 
book-store report — it was actually interesting ! — and for her very excel- 
lent librarianish traits of doing a thing cheerfully, thoroughly, taking 
pains, and, what is more, getting it done eventually, on time.

Anna Harpel 


Tea leaves pagodas 

Lotus blossoms dusky hair 

Jin Rikishas poppy fields 

Gay festivals cherry blossoms 

Chinese dolls fans 

Anne is that irresistible combination of dimples (three of them ) 
and brains. She pushes aside with great ease the difficulties of short- 
hand and the weighty problems of ethics. Never mind, Anne, even 
though your room was called a first-class antique shop, we admit that 
your taste is exquisite. And as a high-explosive, you certainly did go 
off in Ethics on the subject of the Ethics of Marriage.

Ethel M. Hart 

"It is better late than never." 

It's really too bad that Ethel's name doesn't come further at the 
end of the alphabet — it would at least save her the bother of crossing 
out her name on the blackboard under "absent or late?" There is one 
consolation, Ethel, the later you are the newer and more efficient 
methods of library economy you may have to put into practice at your 
library, once started, as every day brings improvement in the methods 
of its organization.

Ethel Louise Hartness 

"Companions that do converse and waste the time together." 

We'll be willing to bet that Ethel's earnest expression doesn't come 
from perusal of library text-books. We think it comes from trying to 
understand everything that Louise Marden says in all the time they've 
roomed together. That, in itself, is a life-size job. But besides, we 
understand that, perused or not, library text-books are not S2cret 
volumes of mystery to Ethel. Indeed, not so ! She ia an expert in all 
library arts — rumor hath it that once, she even got a book out of the 
B. P. L. within two hours ! No triumph could speak louder for her

Virginia R. Haynes 


"A conspicuous example of plain living and high thinking." 

To be endowed with rosy cheeks, blond hair, blue eyes and a Voice 
— what more could mortal ask of the gods? Yet Virginia doesn't seem 
properly impressed with the fact that Fortune played favorites with 
her. For good measure, there's a giggle thrown in that's lovable and 
infectious, and nothing less important than the law (especially Harvard 
Law) is guaranteed a solemn reception. Ginny blythely goes her way 
midst perfect transcripts and other A's, and through it all retains the 
same charm that makes her loved by every member of '24.

"A merry heart goes all the way." 

And that is why Dotty has gone all the way to our hearts and we 
claim her as our best natured. No one can help brightening up when 
she is around, no matter how morose the mood or rainy the day. But 
she is not cheerful only. If you have ever been fortunate enough to 
hear her play her beloved Antonious and caught those pleading, wistful 
violin notes you know that Dotty's thoughts are long, long thoughts 
and the very soul of her is musical.

Alice Weldon Hayward "Al," "Alte Hundert" 

"Age cannot wither, nor custom stale, her infinite variety." 

Words fail us when we attempt to describe Al. During the four 
years we have known her she has not changed a bit, in fact she has 
absolutely refused to grow up. When we need cheering up after flunk 
cards appear or someone has broken the precious crucible with the salt 
which we cooked ten hours and haven't weighed, a good dose of Al is 
the best medicine. Higher praise than this deserveth no man — nor 
woman neither.

Edythe Heap 

"Some credit in being jolly." 

We'll all remember Edythe as the senior who became stooped from 
carrying home so many books, through lack of "something to do." 

If you want to give Edythe a thrill from an hour in Students' 
Room with you, never talk "Men, machines, house-parties or clothes." 
My, no, she is sure to freeze ; she has the original melting glance.

Louise Daniels Heilman 


"Oh tell me where is fancy bred 
Or in the heart, or in the Head. 
In neither one of these, she said. 
But in the Cooking Lab instead." 

And so Heily fooled us, and changed from the "would-be" efficient 
Sec, to the will be "ever there" Home Eccer. 

Did anybody mention tea? Just a minute, Heily will be home from 
this one, get that one, and make plans for the next one. No matter 
how many "stepping outs" she has on hand she will get that tea ready 
just the same. Even so, calories and daily dozenings are only put on 
the shelf for "hot coffee."

Elizabeth Haynes Hill 

"Come and take choice of all my library, 
And so beguile thy sorrow." 

Yes, she is the girl who sits back and looks so decidedly unruffled 
when everyone else is on pins and needles. The most hectic questions 
do not phase her ; for each she has a calm, collected, and generally 
correct answer. We have no doubt that in her future occupation she 
will be equally capable of settling such difficult dilemmas as the proper 
encyclopedia for the various types of Public and whether Dewey or L. 
C. may be used.

Katherine Hobart 

'Hobart," "Kay" 

"To be small and to have a big personality is to have 
accomplished much." 

Goodness knows, Kay's small enough bodily, but mentally and argu- 
mentatively, she's built on the same scale as the Woolworth building. 
It's really a genius to be as self-possessed as Kay especially when you're 
traveling around the country in a precarious Ford, never going less 
than fifty an hour. Be assured, her guests in the car lose poise, breath, 
courage and hairpins, but there's no necessity for it. With Kay at the 
wheel of Henry Ford's noblest work, things go smoothly and serenely 
in the desired direction.

Edith V. Holmstrom "Edie" 

"The best of the sport is to do the deed and say nothing." 

Did you ever see a 1924 hockey game without Edith ? She is right 
there with the stick every time. But then, she had good early training 
in hurrying over the hill every morning for two years to catch the 7 :00 
train out of Worcester. 

It took most of us till Senior year to know Edith, but it's been 
"worth-while waiting for."

Edith Hovey 


"Come, wilt thou see me ride?" 

Too bad there isn't a bridle path in our back yard, for we're sure 
"Ede" on Papyrus could put it all over "Barney G." on "Spark Plug." 
Another thing lacking at Simmons is scholastic grading in the art of 
dancing. Here again "Ede" would excel, for at good times "Ede's" 
right there. 

Edith's greatest desire was to be a camp councilor and her great- 
est grief is — "them days are gone forever."

Helen Howard 

"As a singist, I am not a success." 

Helen appears to have a quiet manner, not at all inclined to pub- 
licity, but appearances are often deceitful. We who know her well can 
read the mischief in her eyes, and that giggle always is a sign of one 
of her weak points. It is that the firm of Spaulding-Howard are hav- 
ing their nightly wrestling match. Helen enjoys sleeping in the morn- 
ing almost better than eating her breakfast, but we would never call 
her lazy — for after she is once wound up, there is no danger of her 
running down, till some one mentions "bridge" and then all activity 
ceases in favor of her pet game.

The theory of Utilitarianism to Milly means — Schrafft's, English

Milly has a marvelous ability for suggesting sympathetic remedies 
for such common collegiate diseases as, "Ennui, Spring-Fever, Flunk-

Doris Emily Hutchinson 


"My Pink-Bcaned Venus, My Caloric Kid." 

Did you ever ask Doris to do anything and get turned down? 
Speak now, or forever do your own dirty work. But of course there's 
no answer. Whether it's shifting scenery for Dramatics, or Glee Club, 
or Y. W. she's right there. And her good nature is almost unfailing. 
She sometimes does try to scare up enough temper to justify that-er- 
auburn hair, but it isn't a bit alarming — just funny. As a side part- 
ner, she's perfection. For references, see Hazel Trask.

"Dot," "Dottie" 

"What'er she did was done with so much ease, 
In her alone, 'twas natural to please. 1 ' 

When Dotty 's around, we all breathe very gently indeed, for she 
looks as though an extra-strong puff might easily blow her into the 
lakes of the dump. All this just goes to prove how deceptive appear- 
ances can be, for Dotty can do more and do it better than any three 
full-sized people put together. Her main achievement this year has 
been bringing up her foster-child, the "Simmons News," from a deli- 
cate infancy with attacks of Lawlessness, to a surprisingly quick ma- 
turity as "thuch a Thad thort of paper." She's done the proverbial 
fifty-seven varieties of things for the class — dramatics, Maqua, and 
Review being only the beginning of the ever-increasing list which 
makes '24 look to Dotty as one of its "best evers."

Lucinda Mary Jennison 

"Cinders" "Cinner" 

"But a smooth and steadfast mind. 
Gentle thoughts and calm desires." 

Lucinda never startles anyone with a war whoop or a crash bane; 
entrance. Although she is sometimes exceedingly quiet, she can be 
thrilled and excited, especially when the telephone calls are for her. 
We all wait and wonder if her attempts to gather in the Miles and 
Miles of wool for a dance are successful. The radiance of her smile 
when she comes out from the telephone booth supplies the correct 
answer to our question. If this certain party fails her, we needn't 
worry since she has an everlasting supply to call upon. The Telephone 
Company would probably go into bankruptcy if it were not for Cin- 
der's nickels, but while she remains in Boston, their income tax re- 
turns will be as high as ever.

This is Johnny. One would never think from looking upon this 
wide awake young lady that she could be tired so often — but, alas! 'tis 
so! 8:30 is curfew and Johnny just must get her rest. However, even 
though dire spasms of homesickness frequently distress her, Mildred is 
a staunch supporter of Simmons and certainly led us through a peppy 
time as Chairman of Junior Prom — and incidentally introduced us to 
the Somerset. 

And how she ever keeps from getting her dates mixed (she keeps 
a little book full — dated weeks ahead!) is quite beyond human compre- 
hension. Here's to our capable Chairman of Activities !

"Figure of truth, of faith, of loyalty." 

Gertrude is one of these happy combinations of level-headedness 
and good fun, ready for a good time but careful not to carry a thing 
too far. She is so dependable too. You can give a sigh of relief when 
you ask her to do anything and she says yes, for you may be sure it 
will be done well. A mighty fine girl is 'Muddy" and a loyal member 
of the Judson-Doolittle Team.

'Bess," "Kappy" 

"When you are old and get to be 
Eighty-two or ninety-three, 
WiU children all respect you?" 

Commuters' families must do something to keep their children look- 
ins; like ten-year-olds. At least, the Kaplan family must. To see Bes- 
sie behind a stern, forbidding Remington, or a man-sized electric book- 
keeping machine is to bring murmurs of "child-labor legislation" and 
"what can her mother be thinking of, to allow a little girl like that out 
alone without a nurse?" But be not deceived! Shorthand and the 
wiles of business methods hold no terrors for Bessie. She does them 
all about 200 per cent, better than the most grown-up looking among

Ellen F. Kapples 

"Some folks are born calm, some achieve calmness, and 
others have calmness thrust upon them." 

Of such is the kingdom of Kapples. Ellen is one of the most level- 
headed, undisturbed members of our class. Transcripts that are dic- 
tated at rates outside the speed laws don't bother her a bit. She sits 
unmoved amid the lunch-room rush. She comes into a class late with 
as much calmness as though she were half an hour early. And the rest 
of us, who tear breathlessly up and down the halls, grip our trusty 
Waterman's and try (without success) to imitate Ellen's air of being 
perfectly satisfied with the way things in general are going.

Setting — Anywhere Minnie is. 

Exit: Dull care. 

Enter: Mirth and youthful jollity in the person of Minnie Kelley. 

No matter how tired she is Minnie never fails to have some story 

Miss Sociable" to tell. It may be anything from reprimanding the 
floor-walker for putting a dog out of his store with force, to claiming 
found goods for a negligent friend. 

When Minnie changed to Social Service and the study of calories 
she determined hers were best with whipped cream ! 

When anything ails us whom do we call? Dr. Kelley — Minnie, 
since her course in Home Nursing and a summer at the playgrounds, 
stands alone in the realm of Dr. — She can always cure us no matter if 
we are determined to remain "ailing." And, whose name can be placed 
in front of Minnie's for curing the blues !

"Oh! Bed! Oh! Bed! Delicious bed! 

That heaven upon earth to the weary head." 

We can't decide if it's that parted-in-the-middle effect or the rested 
look from plenty of sleep that gives Sliz that quaint and demure ap- 
pearance. If you've ever seen Sliz at a feed, try and find her a minute 
later any place but in bed deeply, darkly, deliciously drowsy. But let 
there be a Fashion Show, Red Cross drive, something to do for Mic or 
a heavy date and Sliz is all there, wider awake than any of the rest of 
us, and out to beat former records a mile.

Hazel Ellen Kennerson 

"Oh, what learning is!" 

To be able to act intelligent in Business Methods when the talk is 
of "big business" is the gift of a chosen few, and Hazel is one of the 
elect. When she's managed to accumulate the poise, knowledge and 
general efficiency of the perfect secretary is a puzzle, for she's known 
to have diversions of a non-secretarial type. Yet it remains that even 
our hectic Wednesdays downtown leave her unperturbed, and her cold 
notes hold no mysterious vague forms.

"Gosh ding it. Sue, I like your color hair." 

Mary's been the cause of a great deal of unladylike talk this year. 
Sounds shocking, doesn't it? But what we're trying to say, is that 
she's our gloriously red-headed fire chief ! Pretty tough on anyone who 
has such a contagious giggle as our "Red." Sanior accounts haven't 
dampened her spirits at all — and she's found plenty of time to indulge 
in her favorite pastime — bridge. Outside of "stepping out" and study- 
ing to an extent which arouses our envy and despair, the best thing 
Mary does is sleep ! Morpheus and she are great friends — as you've 
discovered if you have ever attempted waking Mary — at 11 o'clock in 
the morning !

"My life is one dem'd horrid grind." 

College has been just one doggoned struggle after another with 
shorthand for Winifred. She's tried condensed and uncondensed, 
evaporated and unsweetened, but it's all the same sad, meaningless 
bunch of scratches. Perhaps, with that blond and beauteous appear- 
ance, our Winifred hasn't had to take the ordinary worries of "where 
is that after-graduation job" too seriously. We've never heard her 
commit herself, but we have our own private ideas on the subject.

you are downhearted and want someone to share your troubles, when 
you want a good pal for a walk or to help make candy, you just nat- 
urally turn to Ruby. Ask Ruby — there's a reason. It's 'cause she's 
always willing to listen if that's what you want {and most of us do), 
or to join in whatever plans are underway, whether it be impromptu 
vaudeville or a midnight feed.

Marjorie Knox 

"Jerry," "Margie" 

i) :30 A. M. Sunday — Going to church this morning? Yep! 

"Jerry" left the frigid climate of Vermont and Middlebury to come 
to Simmons. Are we sorry? — Not much! "Jerry" with her pep, her 
quick response, and good nature soon worked her way into our hearts. 
She has a particular liking for Flivvers (not difficult to understand 
after it's rolled around once) and especially those equipped with a 
mirror if "Margie" has to sit up front.

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away." 

Grace got a list of Eastern Colleges last year, looked them all over — 
and picked out the one nearest Harvard Medic ! Whereby we gained 
a valuable new addition. When Grace begins to spin a yarn, eyes, ears 
and mouths open wide. She has the happy faculty of making us just 
dote on anecdotes. One of the unexplained decisions in Grace's career 
is why she chose the Library Course instead of the Secretarial. If you 
want to know, ask her. The reason's most refreshing to us prosaic

"The dignity and height of honor.' 

Mu has a great faculty of making things seem what they aren't. 
To see her lead a Y. W. meeting you'd think she was the most dignified 
of seniors — but she isn't. When she appears as Mrs. John Simmons 
you'd think she just stepped out of the frame of a picture of a lady of 
the eighteenth century — but she didn't. Why she can even make you 
think that it's trouble with her teeth that makes her visit the dentist so 
often — but it isn't.

Ruth S. Langley 


"Doctor to a kind of disease which they call lack of money." 

A general impression of Ruth includes a deep voice, soprano 
giggle, and a set of account books. Without the last item, you couldn't 
really be sure that it was Ruth. Most of us know her as the dispenser 
of blue slips by means of which our pet organization spends its money. 
Some of us know her as the dispenser of more laughs in five square 
minutes than any other "grave and reverend senior" around these parts. 
Her masterpiece, in the line of music, is, "Every Little Onion has a 
Flavor All Its Own," and, in hockey, "Every Little Round Ball has a 
Goal Post All Its Own." We leave it to Ruth to provide the flavor and 
make the goal, and best of all, she always does it.

"Who to himself is law, no law doth need 
Offends 710 law, and is a king indeed." 

We've decided that it doesn't make a bit of difference whether Dot 
wears her hair in sedate little doughnuts over her ears, or in an unruly 
looking bob— she still looks like a little brown imp escaped from the 
haunts of Pan. The fact that she's disgustingly good in Accounts and 
in most everything for that matter (we refrain from mentioning Dot's 
one Waterloo!) doesn't add to her years at all. 

Dot's a really perfect fiend though, — no not temper, bridge ! Any 
old time on third floor South you hear "How 'bout a little bridge?" and 
Dot's there tearing to go I

"My experience makes me sad." 

Poor Ann ! We do pester her outrageously with special and press- 
ing invitations to class meetings, group meetings, proms, picture-tak- 
ings, Mic shows — and so on, endlessly. It's 'cause we know if we bother 
her long enough, she'll come, and, once Ann's there, you have a big 
extra-added attraction. She's been torn between the demands of 96 the 
Fenway, and 300 the Fenway so long that she surely must wish she 
were twins. We can imagine what '24 would have been like without 
Ann, but we'd rather not. The idea's too desolate, and our famous 
class without Ann's equally famous deep-voiced remarks would be like 
the dump without burrs — unrecognizable and unattractive.

Beany's very favoritest indoor-sport is summoning the fortunate at 
Pete to telephone or caller, her second favoritest is figuring up the high- 
cost-of-lunching, in the upper left hand corner of the lunchroom, and 
her third favoritest is plunking her trusty mandolin. In between times, 
she hauls in marks that make us gaze at her with awe, and she even 
(though this is a state secret) has been known to talk to one Thomas. 
Most of us are eternally indebted to her for the best of the snaps in 
our mem-books, and a call from Beany, be it for telephone, caller, snaps, 
or just sociability is always welcome.

"She hath a ponderous store of ready answers." 

Jessie is one of '24's young intellectuals who can be counted on to 
save the day by knowing: the right answer, whatever the question hap- 
pens to be. For the information of the public at large, Jessie is not a 
Household Ecer, though we'll admit she looks more like it, somehow, 
than she does like a S3cretary. Business offices and Jessie seem to be a 
'■ontradi' tion of. terms. These four years she's kept pretty exclusively 
to her own coterie of friends, so that now that we know her a little we 
wish that she'd given us a chance to know her a lot.

"Dot," "Tot" 

"Merely to come in, sir, they go out." 

If you'd have a word with Dot you must catch her in transit, 
for she's sure to be just coming or just going. She's in the blue book 
as a dorm student, but her neighbors in South Hall question the ac- 
curacy of our otherwise infallible student directory. Dot has a pert 
little grin that suggests lots of things she won't tell, and in the last 
category we're inclined to put those interesting week-ends that we 
hear about only in tantalizing snatches. If she weren't so mousey- 
quiet about herself we might tell you what that twinkle means. But 
we don't know, our curiosity notwithstanding. All that we've found 
out for our trouble is that it has to do with something chronically funny 
in life, and that it's Dot's constant companion.

times she has been having. Nor can we forget the day she spilled 
the acid in Chem. Lab., and the sad result. Dot holds the world's 
record for successful promotion of Newman Club good times, and the 
brain back of those two big black sparklers is probably the reason for 
the success of those peppy parties.

Katherine is one of those rare beings which the Sophs point out to

Academy. They say she's a whiz at short, and type., and you ought 
to read her themes." But that ain't all. Katherine is also one of the 
girls who helps 1924 to keep its reputation on Track Day. All of which 
goes to prove that the old theory that athletics and scholarship are al- 
ways divorced is N. G.

Closest rival of the well-known Valentino. 

Don't you believe it? You haven't seen her. 

To be sure, her business letters are cold, at least that's what Mr. 
Collester said in Oral English. But — tell me — can one burst into ar- 
dent eloquence when writing to a customer in Long Plain, Montana? 
Not without difficulty. Her style's cold, and her interpretive typing 
has not the universal appeal— otherwise she would have become — a 
perfect secretary. From that fate she was happily spared. However, 
she was not able to elude the watchful eye of the Academy — not even 
by hiding in the last row of her classes, 'way up back in the ten-cent 
seats, and refusing to volunteer a word.

as the model secretary for the president of a bank. He will find 
efficiency personified, and along with efficiency, character, promptness, 
neatness, accuracy, dependability, and all the rest of the A. No. 1 
requisites for a perfect secretary, according to Mr. Collester. If Alice 
ever failed to do anything right, and right on time, we've failed to 
notice it, and for her soul-wearying toil as Business Manager of THE

'7 lox>e vast libraries; yet there is a doubt 
If one be better with them or without." 

Just because she happens to be President of the Academy with 
an all A record, or so near as to stun the rest of us poor mortals, is 
no reason on earth why she should bury her nose in hooks. So she's 
the very personification of her name, and the happiest girl we know. 
She is the living, breathing example of successful co-ordination of 
outside and school interests. In spite of day-dreams and diamond 
rings she would make a good librarian if she didn't have ever so much 
better plans for the future, which seem to lead to an unusual interest 
in perceptual discrimination as it applies to interior decorating.

"eyes, the windows of the soul" — and some of it is true. Looking in 
Ursula's windows, then : 

1. The look of friendly good-humor which brings to her, and keeps 
for her, friends. 

2. The quiet, peaceful glance that is a big asset to her friends at 
the end of a typical, hard Simmons day. 

3. "A mirthful light" that leads us to run to her with all oui' 
jokes, since we're sure of a good reception for them. 

4. A look of patient endurance that has been earned by carrying 
with her for four years the nickname "Half-pint."

ing person who never seems disturbed or hurried even when crucibles 
break, electric currents short circuit or Dr. Campbell can't be found. 
However, these calamities happen to Ouida so much less often than 
to the rest of us, that her moments of agitation are probably few and 
far between. As far as we can observe, they are so far between as 
to be non-existent.

"I bring but a ball,

There's a small edition of a girl in '24 who has quite successfully 
romped to top honors in tennis, hockey, and basketball. To become, 
and remain, four years' champion in tennis is only one of her many 
accomplishments. But in intervals between winning this or that cup, 
she manages to find time to take in Simmons Dances, Medic Teas, 
Fraternity Dances, Tech Concerts, and has been known to travel miles 
to house parties and proms. Have you guessed it? Yes, it's Phoeb. 
For all her athletics, she's quite prone to attacks of consumption — of 
tea and crackers, tomato soup, waffles or what not — most any day or 
night. Luckily for Simmons sports, they never prove fatal and

make us think that she is sewing for Miss Spooner, but the twinkle in 
h>:r eye as she says it gives her away. Somewhere not far from 
Simmons, she has a most hopeful chest to fill. Connie hopes to go 
into textile work. I rather think we misinterpret the word for I am 
quite sure that Tech Style suits her better. Her road to success lies 
in home making, and what a fine home it will be.

"Does she ever wind her tongue up, 
Does she ever let it go?" 

To reduce the life history of Helen's ambitions to a nut-shell we 
would say : 

Past — To aim for a "B" in order to get a "C". 

Present — To stretch her week's allowance to cover a multitude of 
sins (tea, theater, candy, etc.) 

Future — That suite for two, and a goodly salary.

Marion Elizabeth Pfeiffer 

"Everything's got a moral, if you can but see it." 

If you have ever seen, in your travels on the subway, a girl with 
dark hair and big black eyes muttering to herself as she hangs from 
a strap, she wasn't someone escaped from that red brick building on 
Brookline Avenue. No, it was just Marion Pfeiffer, learning her 
English 70 speech as she commuted from Natick. Yes, Marion pre- 
pares her English well. We don't know how true it is, but they say 
that almost any evening you will find her at home, practicing before 
an audience of one !

Eleanor Pitt 


"Another flood of words, a very torrent" 

It's always such a comfort to have Eleanor in one's class, because 
you know that when one of those awful silences follow an instructor's 
Question, when you can hear the ticking of the clock, and everyone 
prays for the bell to ring, Eleanor will save the day. If she can't 
answer the question, she can at least ask another, and that's such a 
help. And if somebody else hazards an answer, Eleanor's right there 
ready to argue the point — and there's another period gone. Is com- 
muting from Newton so conducive to ready response? If so, perhaps 
more of us had better try it.

"/ spread before you the work of my hands." 

Is Lena laughing or crying ? After pretty nearly four years of 
careful investigation we can almost say with safety that she is just 
appreciating another joke, probably the one about the D. N. B. All 
through Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior years Lena commuted all 
the way from Haverhill, and during that time made thirty-six sweaters, 
seventeen luncheon sets and several acquaintances, which, we'll submit, 
is enough for one small, turned-up-nosed person.

Frances Pope 

"Fran" "Popey" 

"Bid the players make haste." 

"There's something much more aesthetic about a catalogue than a 
typewriter," quoth Fran one day, and straightway, she became one 
of the ardent disciples of Mr. Dewey. Fran's been the axle round 
which many a class affair has revolved and our tennis tournaments 
wouldn't "turn" without her. And for the benefit of those who might 
chance to think Fran quiet, let us whisper that when the brown eyes 
begin to twinkle and the corners of that expressive mouth turn up — 
prepare for mirth. As a last final word about Popey, she's just about 
our idea of what a real pal should be — and is.

"Cin" "Cinders' 

"Man is a tool-making animal." 

"Cin" of the inventive mind and mathematical brain has been '24's 
mechanic in all its four years. She invented the rabbit that hopped on 
Track Day, and the nifty curtain pulls that adorn our windows and the 
Simmons trays we're saving up our pennies for. And then there's stage 
managing. If the footlights refuse to shine forth, and the scenery falls 
apart, it's "Cin" that knows how to fix it. And does she know how to 
boss ? She does!

Eleanor Rindge 


"Nature made her, and then broke the mould." 

Such a quandary — how to describe Rindgie. We might call her an 
angel, but, knowing "Rindgie," we'd better refrain. We ask you, '24, 
what would you call the person who is always giving someone a good 
time, running errands in the "Caddie," making teams in athletics, study- 
ing now and then, going to dances when she says she doesn't know any 
men ; playing her fiddle when we can't hear Kreisler, and always getting 
candy from Springfield, and letters from the U- S. S. Huron? 

Perhaps the least said the better, for a year-book's no place for sen- 
timentality and we all know how '24 feels about our "Rindgie."

S is for Spanish which gives her such fun, 
E is the ease with which her work is done ; 
L is for curly locks, fluffy and blond, 
M is dance music of which she is fond. 
A's for the angel she seems at first glance, 

B stands for blue eyes where merry imps dance. 

R's for her rifle, (she's handy with guns), 
O is her groan when her friends try some puns. 
A means she abominates such things as type, 
C for the care she takes doing things right. 
H is for humor that stands every test,

"Young Loch-invar came out of the West." 

Anne came to us her Senior year from out where the West begins.

'Betty" "Beth" 

"I bear a charmed life.'' 

Privately, we think Beth was the inspiration for that "school-girl

of Lowell do not ruffle Bessie. She appears daily for classes with that 
calm, unruffled air which, generally, belongs not to the ranks of the 
commuters. Something tells us there must be outside interests that keep 
our Beth so satisfied with life in general.

Quotation from Melitta any Saturday morning during her first win-

we realize it all the more.

Marjorie Rogers 


"Thinking that nothing was done, if anything remained to do." 

From crocheting yokes to composing sonnets and playing the clario- 
net over the radio, Marj Rogers is a star. We hope that she will be 
equally successful in leading the Public from Ethel M. Dell upwards ; 
and she ought to be, if her academic work can be any indication of her 
ability. In the most unassuming way possible she slipped into the Acad- 
emy — she just couldn't help herself. And while she may not be able to 
help herself, as Chairman of clean-up for Dramatics, she seems to find 
no trouble at all helping others.

Edith Mary Rose 


"Oh, that this too, too solid flesh would melt! 

Rosey is '24's unabridged edition of fun. Her wit is of a 6-barrel, 
sure-fire, automatic repeater variety, but it doesn't repeat itself. To 
hear her tell the atomizer one, or — but why be specific ? As soon as one 
of Edith's little classics has reached the quotable stage, half a dozen of 
its successors have crowded it into ancient history. Life's Little Trage- 
dies leave Rosey serene ; but when it comes to a real, dyed-in-the-wool 
tragedy, such as losing the ticket to Detroit — well, Pollyanna might 
break a good resolution on the strength of that — and Rosey's no Polly- 

'24's "who's who" wouldn't be complete without Rosey, and she'd 
occupy more than two paragraphs, at that, if we could do her justice. 
Dramatics, Mic Show, Stude G Party — she (and Mr. Rindge's versatile 
ward-robe) featured in all of them. As Editor of Mic she's spent un- 
flagging energy and enthusiasm, and the success of the book is largely 
due to her. Everything that's come Rosey's way this year has been 
grist for Mic — but even so she's anything but a grind.

Zelda Rosenberg 


"A happy combination, and in excellent proportit 

Zelda supplies a combination of two almost unknown quantities for 
the class of '24 — athletics and A's. She gets enough of the latter to be 
passed around so that all of us could have a few, and she does enough 
of the former so that the fame of '24 is passed around considerably. All 
these accomplishments do not seem to suppress the twinkle in those 
black eyes or the shake of the head that tosses that mop of black hair 
out of the way. We just know that some man's going to have one 
mighty efficient secretary in Zelda.

Give Lina a piece of cloth and a needle and thread, and she will 
create anything you want, from a handkerchief to an evening gown. 
Oh yes, she is a future secretary, but that makes no difference for she's 
a living example of the creature in the budget systems who always 
lives within her budget by creating her own creations at home, and 
looking like a Paquin model. 

She has other interests, too, running all the way from violin les- 
sons up (or down) to Penn State.

looked for more Fields to conquer. Melodious Music made much mir-

rities she inveigles into coming to talk to us "Thursday night in North

Have you ever seen Carolyne when she didn't have loads to tell you 
about the wonderful time she had or the darling man she met? 

She left her Alma Mater and her Cornell admirers to come to Sim- 
mons and study Social Service. Now she spends most of her time (in 
classes) writing letters to Cornell, Michigan, Virginia, and many other 
"boys she left behind her." Perhaps Carolyne believes that "Social 
Service begins at home!"

"From scenes like these old Scotia's grandeur springs." 

When introducing Scottie one says, "This is Scottie — Scottie — what 
is your last name?" Scottie came to us Sophomore year and for two 
years held forth in Students' House. As far as we can find out, the 
only thing that ever worried her was Spanish, and that but intermit- 
tently. Well, why should she worry? Ask her if she takes English 70 
or Psych, this term and she answers airily, "Oh no. I had that before 
I came to Simmons !"

drawers, not a thing out of place even though she has thirty-two hours 
a week first, last, and all the time. She learned other things than short-

is one of those accomplishments. Tea dancing at Tech is her favorite 
indoor sport.

Lorna Howes Shaw 

"The proper science and subject for contemplation is man himself." 

Don't make the mistake of thinking that all Academy members are 
very practical, very cold, or even unromantic. You would never be- 
lieve it after you knew Lorna, anyway. We must ask Dr. Harley if con- 
stant attendance at movies can account for Lorna's romantic tendencies, 
her interest in History (especially Scotch) and dentists, and her love 
for Physics. The "complex" is too much for us.

Catherine Williams Sieger 


"Variety is the Spice of Life." 

Sieger can meet you in any mood. She's the life of any party, she's 
always ready to go to "Loew's State" or to Durgins, to stay at home 
and entertain, or to have a long and serious discussion on how to right 
the world's wrongs. She'll tease, scoff, ridicule, sympathize, or encour- 
age according to her mood and yours. No matter what you want of 
her, she can do it. 

Sieger's done some lovely things on the Refectory stage — all the 
way from Macbeth to the Turkish knight and they've all left us weak, 
convulsed, and gasping for more. Too bad she hasn't shone forth

"Fate tried to conceal her by naming her Smith." 

But it didn't succeed, for that magic name "Smith" when it appears 
in the lower right hand corner of a most artistic cut is as good as the 
mark "sterling" is on silver. It means that the product is just the 
best and most genuine in its line. 

Hazel can't be bothered with little trifles that irritate her. So, 
when the courses of the "Household Wreckers" become too rigorous, off 
she hies to Chicago for a year of art for art's sake. And, on her re- 
turn, she sports a glittering, glowing glory on her left hand ! Train 
leaving at 2:10 for Chicago and points West. Don't mob the gates!

Helen decided to leave Tufts and come to Simmons her sophomore

rian than our good natured Helen Smith? It is easy to imagine her 
patiently and serenely answering the "Where-is-William-Shakespeare- 
living-now?" type of question at the charging desk- But we wonder 
sometimes — after watching the constant writing and calling of these 
"distant cousins and old friends," whether we aren't letting our imagi- 
nations carry us along the wrong track.

book and fountain pen or some most forgotten class. She always gets 
there though, and many of '24's efforts owe a goodly share of their 
success to Ruth's untiring efforts. Among those successes are most of 
the snaps for this volume, in pursuit of which Ruth spent many weary 
minutes. We all hope that our thanks will repay her for the madden- 
ing job of getting those Statistics snaps together.

And in many a dark extremity, Alice has dawned on us from the

know to do anything in the world — from helping you out of a tight cor- 
ner to chaperoning adoring Freshmen, anything, that is, except public 
speaking. But we all have our limitations. Maybe it's the chaperon- 
ing that's made her our most dignified, but still, it's been a four-year- 
trait. Freshmen aren't the only ones who are adoring, though. There's 
the Duke. He's already put a diamond label on his Duchess that means

"She'd open her round eyes

It is hard to pin Noisy down to facts. That innocent expression 
that appears in answer to questions about New Haven may mean much 
or nothing. Noisy is a thirty-third degree pounder of the typewriter 
and many a time she keeps the night watchman from going to sleep 
on his rounds by click-clacking a Review article on her pet, prized pos- 
session. She has achieved the impossible this year by finding a coif- 
fure that will be becoming and yet bridge that awful bobbed-to-long 
stage. And that's not the half of it — she's even given up eating between 
meals — was it three or four times ?

How do they do it : Ask Mary, for if it he in Browning or in Govern-

In the dead of the night, if you live in North Hall, you wake to a

you wonder how the night watchman can have pep enough to walk so 
fast at that time of night. And then if you're not too sleepy you re- 
member that you left Taylor writing a library report some hours ago. 
and it's probable she's just going to bed. Marj may yet, after her ex- 
perience with the Review, decide that she would rather publish a maga- 
zine than be a librarian, but if she is the latter, we expect she will keep 
a large family of young cats under the charge desk. Rarsch !

don't know and we don't even want to think about it. 

In the three years that Jane's been with us, she's given us more 
real thrills than anyone else has in four. All sorts of thrills — from 
Boston-American publicity. Press Boards and caps and gowns, to her 
two last and shining achievements — the co-editorship of this ponder- 
ous tome and remembering to go to Assembly. For the first, she 
has the editor's undying gratitude, and for the second, our congratula- 
tions and co-operation.

"Lo, hear the gentle lark." 
Of course, it must be lots of fun to be a lark, but it's much more 
fun to have a voice like one and still be a real girl, for who ever heard 
of a lark wearing a third-finger diamond? Tommy does, though, and 
the easiest way to create a large amount of excitement is to show 
Tommy an orange and black color scheme. Riot calls have been sent in 
for less cause. 

Tommy is '24's mainstay for all occasions when we want to be 
charmingly entertained. That's not all, though. She's as valuable on 
a hockey field as she is in a Glee Club, and when you've said that, you 
might as well stop. Mr. Collester himself could put it no better.

"It pays to advertise." 

It's hard to realize that our Tommy is a dignified Senior 'cause she 
looks like a saucy young imp with her bobbed hair and black eyes. 
Tommy plays hard and works hard. Do you want proof? Just look 
over Tommy's mail and see the Hanover, Providence, West Point, U- S. 
Navy and other postmarks, and take a look at her marks, and you'll 
agree with us. 

We haven't even mentioned Tommy's toil as Advertising Manager 
of this august book. We don't know how she does it, but we'd hate to 
lose her with her uncanny skill at making the Tired Business Man 
realize how much more tired he'd be without an ad. in Mic.

"When we have matched our racquet and these balls." 

If tennis, Y. W. or Dramatics lack enthusiasm, it's not Rommie's 
fault, because she herself is just as full of it as she can hold, and she 
shows it in every step she takes. But if you want to start a young riot, 
ask her about Social Service work, and you're off for the evening. She 
delights in picking up small boys who have lost their way, and in tell- 
ing young mothers how much orange juice to feed the baby, and she 
revels in diseases with the most impressive names, and in settling the 
problems of the world in the wee small hours. But in all her social 
work it is easy to see that she has a decided leaning toward psychology !

"I love all books, but specially ledgers, journals, and the like." 

Tippy doesn't say so terribly much, but what she does say is law. 
At least to judge by that big fat A in Commercial Law, every remark 
she let slip in that class was the perfectly good law of the land. 

And that's not all. There aren't many graduating classes that can 
boast of a future C. P. A. among their number. We wonder if the 
combination of a love for accounting and a passion for dancing are 
compatible. Perhaps Tippy is goin^ to combine them and prove "figures 
dancing in her head" help to get them down on paper.

too, as an Household Ec-er she's quite the prize — cake baking and date

"Is it time to get up?" Oh no, Hazzle, it is only time for lunch. 
But don't confuse a love for sleep in the morning with general inac- 
tivity. You should see her behind the scenes at dramatics, at clean-up 
committees, and at all sorts of thankless jobs. Hazzle is the person you 
fly to instinctively when you want something done just right in a hurry, 
from a last minute write-up to a costume for tomorrow's show. In-

"Voice from Trot's room to one of the passers by, the minute the 
bell rings. Trot is always fearful that she won't get to dinner, to class 
or to assembly on time, but no one ever saw Trot appear in any of the 
above-mentioned social gatherings, anything but exactly on time, or a 
little early. 

Although Trot hasn't studied Appreciation of Art, we all agree that 
she has quite an extensive gallery of her own — often enjoyed by the 
neighbors too. She has all sizes, from one and a half inch to two feet 
in length, and strange as it may seem, the same model posed for all of 
them. We hope she'll bequeath them to Simmons as an incentive for 
founding an Art museum.

"There can be no harmony in our being except our 
happiness coincides with our duty/' 

Did we ever see Sally handing in a theme or any piece of work a 
day late? Never. She always has her work done days ahead of time. 
If we want someone to give us some help on the same work we've been 
putting off — "Ask Sally"— "She can do it" — and it'll be done right too. 
Have you ever heard Sally render — "Peoria, it's a place you know" or 
"Oh, Judge, this is Mrs. Davis." If you haven't, you've never seen 
Sally at her best.

"She can draw a pattern, make a tart, and has the

One of the few things we are not going to forget when we leave 
Simmons is the joyous "haloee" with which Mary greets some of her 
specials. Mary sure is one of the "up and doings" of '24, and although 
we must admit she usually starts to "up and do" about the 58th 
second, and arrives about the 59th second, she gets there just the same. 

Among her chief peculiarities is an extraordinary fondness for ani- 
mals, particularly the rabbit family. Yes, she has at least six. Ask 
Squeeze Marden — she knows !

'Most everyone thinks he has to work a little harder than the 
next fellow, and if he does anything extra, the halls resound with his 
troubles. But did you know that Mary has for two years read, se- 
lected, and coached plays, besides taking part in them? And yet, as 
she hands you a book at the library desk, with a most librarian air, 
you would think from her smooth hair and spick-and-span collar that 
she hadn't a care in the world. Though Wisp will no doubt be a 
grand success in her line, doesn't it seem a pity to waste such a 
lovely professor behind a library desk? Some day when she is asked 
her opinion of a book she will doubtless say, "It has a slight be-e-any

Beauty experts claim that the combination of fair hair, blue eyes, 
a pink and white complexion, and a smile that shows the dimples are 
all very dangerous (to the opposite sex). Here's a maiden who can 
boast of this rare combination. Mortality statistics haven't come in 
yet, but Dartmouth seems to have been hard hit by the epidemic. 
Ethel may be slow, but she gets there and she has a positive genius 
for getting over-due work accepted, by some system we've never been

"She can plan a dinner fit for a king.' 

Kay does like to plan menus, and all her neighbors look forward 
with glee to her list of nasturtium sandwiches and humming birds' 
tongue confections which she reels off so glibly. She is absolutely 
never hurried and almost never flurried and, while things may not get 
done exactly to the minute, they do get done, and done well, if you 
trust 'em to Kay. She's established a record here at College. No one's 
ever seen her, not even once, with a hair out of place or a wrinkle 
in her blouse. We ordinarily crumpled mortals just plain can't under- 
stand it, but we do know enough to admire any one who knows that 
secret art whereby the elusive professional grade is acquired.

"Good things come in small packages." 

It's such an old bromide, but this saying applies so well to Kitty 
that we simply had to use it. You all know Kitty, of course — the 
little imp with the enormous black eyes, and the lovely clothes — who 
thinks Philadelphia, and incidentally the University of Pennsylvania, 
the nicest places in the world. Kitty's one of the best little dancers 
of the class of 1924. We wish we'd seen her oftener, and we hope 
Kitty's dance through life will be a very happy one.

"The feminine mind is seldom logical." 

Somewhere and sometime before Marjorie came to Simmons, she 
took a course in logic — fortunate damosel. Now, although she herself 
swears by it, we don't know whether or not it was the fault of that 
course, but we do know that while the rest of us are thinking, that is 
to say, when we are visibly attempting concentration upon weighty 
subjects, Marjorie uses the straight line method and hits the Q. E. D. 
with a bang, thereby saving time, energy and worry. That's efficiency, 
or rather, "that's logic. But Marjorie, tell us this — is it a principle 
of logic that a maid with such a logical lingo, should have such an il- 
logical twinkle in her eye? She'll merely repeat, "Yes, we have no

"Nothing that concerns a man do I deem a matter of indifference." 

Did you ever go to a dance — any dance, anywhere? Then you know 
Lib. Ever since she "sang forth" as Freshman Cheer Leader, she 
has been "among those present," whether it be at Yale, Harvard or 
Dartmouth, with three cheers for Medical School. But she is not al- 
ways frivolous ; whenever there is something to do, she is quite a 
capable young lady and can turn her hand to most anything — even to 
Arithmetic. When Lib turns up her sleeves to match that turned-up 
nose, things begin to happen, and if Lib has a finger in 'em they're 
sure to have pep.

That all our swains commend her?" 

You should hear every one sing her praises when anybody men-

good food — and plenty of both of them. And speaking of house parties, 
did you ever go to Exeter or Amherst, Sylvia ? When you walk by 
suite 302 South any time between 7.30 and 12, if Sylvia is home, she's 
peacefully sleeping with a light shining right in her face. Maybe 
that's where the sparkle in her eyes comes from. Early to bed makes 
her full o' pep — for the night after ; "he" ( whoever the present he 
may be) is the sweetest thing !

"A girl of hope and forward-looking mind." 

Dignified, deliberate and demure is our Jeanette. You'd never 
think to look at her that her main interest was far from the shelves 
of a library. Oh, very far, for it consists of an annual climb up her 
pet mountain. It must have been that little habit that makes her so 
tall and stately. Library work's all well and good in its place, but 
there are several young Lochinvars that come out of the West who 
seem to say that a librarian's place is, or should be, in the home.

"Slow to anger and Quick to praise." 

Friendly and dependable — that is a combination not applicable

Thelma always was in a fever about getting her work done on time and 
correctly; and, in fact, to judge from the standard of her work, one 
would be inclined to believe that her sole interest was in Simmons. 
But, oh my ! we understand there is another soul interest ! However, 
Thelma, you are always ready to give help in every way, and you 
will get your reward in heaven — even for signing checks in pencil !

Dot is one of the favored few in our class who has a Buick Coupe

at is her presence in classes following: these "flights of freedom," since 
for many of us, even the plebeian subway hath charms to seduce the 
senior into the wiles of the movies. Let's thank our stars that she's 
above temptation for, Dot being present, even the typewriter appears

more, we feel sure that the many L's in her name stand for Letters

"Her air, her smile, her motions told 
Of womanly completeness." 

When spring of Sophomore year came and we had our strawberry- 
shortcake everybody asked between mouthfuls, "Whence the genius 
behind all this?" The answer was Millie Williams. Ever since, 
whenever we want any dresses, decorations, dissipations or dates ar- 
ranged with the art of a Maxfield Parrish, we all know where to go. 
Millie has one besetting sin, her unvaried and inevitable lateness. She 
loathes being on time, but when she gets there, no one would ever 
guess that five minutes before, she was peacefully sewing on cuffs, or 
trimming her hat, or even cutting out that good-looking dress that 
she was to wear that evening.

but she is not reckless, and thereby hangs a tale. Did you ever hear 
about the accident to the uncommon carrier of Dr. Hamlin's? It was

'Twas early in September, if rightly I remember,

And two flivvers passing by, saw the twinkle in her eye.

who made a four-year course in three. Was the cause of her hurry

The new Constitution has been on trial for a year now, and the marked 
success of that year is an assurance that the change was a wise one. 

The purpose of Student Government is, as we have so often been told, 
to train students for better citizenship. The problem of living with people is 
essentially the same in one community as in another ; and it follows that if 
we are fair here and now, to ourselves and to our college, we can not fail to 
be fair in matters that come our way later when we have completed our 
apprenticed citizenship.

'24 has been a year of innovation, of changes in the old order to make 
way for the new. The most pronounced change under the new Constitu- 
tion came, of course, when the Dormitory Government Association was 
abolished, and the Dormitory Committee, subordinate to the Student Gov- 
ernment Council, took its place. 

The Committee, meeting once in two weeks, discusses the problems 
arising in the dormitories, and submits suggestions to the Student Govern- 
ment Council, which has the final power of decision. Of all the features to 
be found in the new arrangement, perhaps the most significant is the privi- 
lege of the members to bring non-members to meetings of the Committee. 
By this means the Committee hopes to obtain ideas that shall represent the 
dormitory groups as a whole. By this direct participation, too, students 
should become more familiar with the work of the Committee and gain 
sympathy for its aims.

The Student Government Conference Committee furnishes the com- 
mon meeting ground for faculty and student opinions of Simmons' prob- 
lems. In general, the Committee reviews those decisions of Student Coun- 
cil which affect matters of college policy. 

The faculty members of the Committee have devoted much time and 
thought to the solution of student problems, and have shown never-failing 
sympathy for the student view-point. For this the student members, as 
well as the student body at large, thank them sincerely, and for the closer 
contact between faculty and students which their membership in the 
Committee permits.

It has been a long, slow process, this accumulating of our endowment 
fund. From the alumnae, student campaigns, fashion shows, dances, card 
parties, and private donations it has trickled in ; and the spirit which ac- 
companied each dollar has built up an indestructible wall of faith in our 
college. Not only do our students and graduates feel this, but judging from 
the generous offer of the Rockefeller Foundation, they, too, have an 
inkling of what Simmons' spirit means.

President, Joy Merrill 

The Academy, the honorary society of Simmons, was founded in 1918 
to encourage an interest in academic and cultural studies as opposed to 
those of a technical nature. In an effort to widen the influence of the so- 
ciety, an amendment to the constitution was passed this year, which admits 
to associate membership girls who are deeply interested in the aims and 
ideals of the Academy. Those aims and ideals have been expressed by a 
former president in these words : 

"In a place like Simmons, where the trend is ever more and. more 
away from the academic and intellectual, the ideal of keeping one's wits as 
nimble as one's fingers has tremendous potential significance. The striving 
is not for mechanical accuracy in any branch whatever ; the striving is for 
sympathetic appreciation of the best in the realm of the intellect. 

"The Academy should teach its members to humanize their knowledge, 
not merely to amass it by dint of memory strain. 'Not a having and a 
resting, but a growing and a becoming is the character of perfection as 
culture conceives it.' This, I think, may well be the central idea around 
which the Academy should build."

This year, the Ellen Richards Club is five years old, and really begins 
to feel grown up. We have had several open meetings with very interest- 
ing and enlightening speakers — and our picnic with Mr. Hilliard to meet 
us at the car-line, and Dr. Mark to tell us stories by firelight — and initia- 
tion, with branding of foreheads, which is Simmons' only real initiation. 

The aim of the Ellen Richards Club is to promote interest in science 
among students. This year, we have added a bulletin board to our pos- 
sessions, and feel that we have kept the student body fairly well informed 
in the lines of modern science — popular and otherwise.

Student Forum is a consolidation of the Civic League and Current 
Events of former years, and has attended to the various functions of those 
two bodies this year, bringing- speakers to the group meetings in North 
Hall ; keeping Students' Room supplied with newspapers, and posting clip- 
pings of interest on the Civic League Bulletin Board. Forum has even 
gone out of its way and undertaken to supply ushers at public forum meet- 
ings in the Old South Meeting House. 

Everything which stimulates thought and discussion of questions of 
political, social, economic and cultural importance is in Forum's province, 
and the real support and interest which students have given it this year in- 
dicates that its niche is secure among the student organizations.

Have your proud parents been forwarding clippings about you — 
clippings inexplicably flaunting your most abhorred photograph? Have 
all your offices, honors, committees, et al., been unearthed and exposed to 
the gaze of "the great unwashed," incidentally bringing you importance in 
the eyes of the folks back home ? Be not alarmed ! Mr. Holmes is not on 
your trail, nor is the "Professional grade" Committee divulging any 
secrets. It's only the new Press Board amusing itself. 

The Press Board was organized in the winter to fill a very pro- 
nounced need at Simmons. It took counsel of the very efficient Press 
Boards represented at the first Intercollegiate Press Conference held at 
Connecticut College, and mapped out its own course with their accomplish- 
ments in view. 

The value of the right sort of publicity to a college is unquestionable. 
The Press Board is dedicated to the purpose of securing for Simmons all 
the publicity of the right sort that is available. In addition, the actual 
writing of news stories and, in some cases, the contact with editors them- 
selves, is an invaluable experience for budding young journalists.

Aside froml its religious purpose, Y. W. C. A. serves Simmons in 
countless practical and social ways. It is a sort of nll-in-the-cracks asso- 
ciation, quietly but effectively accomplishing certain vital things. The 
various committees of Y. W. divide this work among themselves: child wel- 
fare work, Sunday afternoon entertainment in the dormitories, meetings 
for economic education, classes in religious discussion, student employ- 
ment, Thanksgiving baskets and their distribution, Christmas and Easter 

The chief interest of Y. W. C. A. in the Spring is the sending of dele- 
gates to Maqua. These delegates become the backbone of our Y. W. ; from 
Maqua comes pep, loyalty, inspiration, and the capacity for fundamental

"We Unitarians" have been thriving well this year. Whether our 
growth has been caused by an especially propitious Simmons climate or the 
unusual qualities of Boston soil is disputable ; but we can feel sure that our 
access to fine speakers who have so willingly come to our meetings and led 
our minds in the right direction, has been the greatest factor of the year's 

Besides our own very sociable and enlightening monthly meetings, held 
in North Hall, we have tried to take an active interest in some of the re- 
ligious and social activities of other young people's societies in Boston. 
And we have gained much from this mutual appreciation of Unitarian 

We are greatly indebted to Miss Goodrich for her loyal support and 
ever-present help in time of trouble — or otherwise. 

That this spirit of co-operation and interest will continue to grow as 
our club goes on is a certainty ; and we hope that, with our greater under- 
standing, gained by religious conviction, we may, go out from the college 
better able to serve and appreciate our fellow-beings.

The Christian Science Society of Simmons College has continued dur- 
ing the year 1923-1924, the endeavor to fulfill the purpose of its organiza- 
tion, which is to bring about a greater realization of friendship and co- 
operation among the Christian Scientists of the college ; to welcome enter- 
ing Christian Scientists ; to increase friendship and love for all members 
of the college ; and to offer to those so desiring, an opportunity to learn the 
truth of Christian Science. 

The regular meetings have been held every week.

The year 1923-1924 has served to bring the Newman Club one step 
nearer to its ideal : the establishment of means of social intercourse among 
Catholic students in college, and the promotion of their moral and religious 

In addition to the usual social functions — the dance, bridge party and 
teas — we have had several delightful speakers come to the college, and we 
have held a joint meeting with the Catholic Club of Technology. Many 
of our members have taken an enthusiastic part in social service work 
under the direction of the Catholic Charitable Bureau.

All societies are formed because there is a need felt which must be met. 
Such a need was felt by the Jewish students for an informal opportunity 
of getting acquainted with Jewish life and thought, thus becoming more 
cultivated and less prejudiced. 

As its symbol was chosen the Menorah candlestick which represents a 
bearer of light. The most famous Menorah was taken from the Temple in 
Jerusalem in the year 70 by the Romans, and lost from the sight of men. 
Since then, the Menorah has been the symbol of our race. This perpetual 
fire of the Menorah has stood for, and still stands for, the glories, the 
spirit through defeat, the renaissance and freshly radiant service to man- 
kind of the Jew. 

Menorah at Simmons has been through its formative stage, has passed 
through the "dark ages." It is now in its golden era, and with the aid and 
interest of all it hopes to make this an everlasting golden age, just as its 
light is everlasting.

The Review is, potentially at least, a vital force in securing the unity 
which the college needs and strives for. Within its pages meet and mingle 
all those who look to Simmons as their Alma Mater — both undergraduates 
and staid alumnae — together with the faculty and administration. It en- 
ables those who are now within our halls to see the college as a whole in 
truer perspective ; for those who have already gone out "into the world," it 
is the chief remaining link between them and the institution which has 
helped to make them — and which they have helped to make. And through 
it, faculty and students become better acquainted with each other's doings 
and points of view. 

To carry this three-fold burden at all required some degree of versa- 
tility ; but however the Board may labor, increased co-operation from with- 
out remains the only true hope of the magazine's progress. The establish- 
ment of the Simmons News has greatly simplified the problems of the 
Review. Nevertheless, the success of the venture will always depend upon 
the interest and loyalty of the college at large.

To most folks a calendar is a handy little contrivance for determining 
what the date is. Not so for Mic Board ! About the fifteenth of last Sep- 
tember, our calendar ceased to be anything pleasant and became instead the 
nemesis that pursued us diligently until it had galloped over the days up 
to March first. On these pages, fore and aft, you have the offerings we 
place on the altar of scurrying Time. Mic-worw, we weary twelve hesi- 
tantly dare to hope that, having appeased our stalking Fate, we have, at 
the same time, produced a book worthy to represent '24.

The News came to light early last fall as a supplement to the Review. 
Like all precocious offspring, however, it soon broke away from the par- 
ental round-table and set up one of its own, with a separate staff and its 
own constitution. The News first appeared in two, three, four, and then 
five mimeographed sheets, and the way it survived labor troubles was 
wondrous to behold. Then, in January, its sub-deb days were over ; it made 
its bow to a greatly increased circulation becomingly clad in; black and 
white and printers' ink — a printed newspaper at last. 

The News' aims are modest: to print all the news of interest to Sim- 
mons students, to be a medium of expression for them, to help to bring 
about a feeling of unity between the dorm girls and the day girls, to in- 
crease college spirit, and any other little thing that may boost Simmons.

The Home Economics Club was organized in the Spring of 1923 for the 
Instructors and all Juniors, Seniors, or Special Students in the Household 
Economics Department. 

Its activities have included preparing and serving the teas given by 
Faculty to their advisees, and through the returns from such work the Club 
is supported by its members. 

The Club has conducted trips to food and textile factories in and 
around Boston. By these means, and through affiliation with the American 
and the New England Home Economics Associations, the Club hopes to ful- 
fill its purpose — to provide a point of contact between the Home Economics 
student in Simmons and the field of Home Economics outside.

Dramatics, this year, has more than come up 
tions. The early fall meeting had for its distinguished guests, Eddie 
Dowling of "Sally, Irene, and Mary," and also Sally, Irene and Mary them- 
selves. The informal talks of our guests and the impression we gained of 
these players are not soon to be forgotten. 

On the evenings of November 16 and 17, following the successful pre- 
cedent set by the Dramatics Association last year, we put on three one-act 
plays, and again the plan was a success. The Freshman play, "The Knave 
of Hearts," called forth predictions for great things in the future of the 
Association, while the Juniors, with "The Bracelet," and the Sophomores 
with "The Pot Boiler," added to the laurels which they had gained for 
themselves last year.

After the success — financial and otherwise — of November's venture, 
Dramatics splurged ; and the splurge came in the shape of a new stage floor 
minus the historic squeak of former times, and a new day-light lighting 
equipment. These were both great assets in the production of "The Cas- 
silis Engagement" in February.

Reflections on the "Play" by the "Professor" 
"The Cassilis Engagement" was all too short. The engagement deserved to be 
among those advertised as having had a run of "one hundred nights in London, New 
York and Boston." At least, so thought the "Professor," as he sat helplessly engulfed 
in the depths of his front row wicker chair. Never would he have believed it possible 
that lessons could be so perfectly learned. It was beyond his experience of the per- 
formance of these players as they said their lines before him on other quite different 
occasions in the college building. He recalled that the physiologists say that food and 
exercise are most effective when taken with enjoyment, and he suspected that a similar 
relation between memory and enjoyment must exist. These reflections did not occupy 
him at the time, however, for he was completely absorbed by the perfection of Lady 
Remenham's portrayal, the charm of Mrs. Cassilis, the humor of Mrs. Borridge, and 
the art of Ethel Borridge, which seemed too good to be mere acting. The performance 
of all the rest of the company, also, he found so remarkably excellent that he trembled 
to think what might happen if they should attempt to practice their art in his class 
room. The "Professor" is grateful for this opportunity to congratulate the Dramatic 
Club on its new stage and settings, which will be an incentive to further successes in the

Glee Club has grown to hitherto unheard-of proportions this year, 
acquiring even the dignity of a waiting list, while some eighty of us flaunt 
our new pearl pins to show that we survived try-outs. 

Convocation and Christmas' Vespers were our first opportunities to 
play our little part, and then came our concerts — the annual winter con- 
cert, a joint concert with B. U. and another with Tufts. The programs 
for these concerts were composed of entirely new, and — if we do say it our- 
selves — ambitious numbers, which, though it involved hard work on many 
a Monday afternoon spent in Library B, gave us a very definite sense of 
progress being made. Much of this progress is due to the cheerful effort 
and generosity of our director, Mr. Peirce.

This legend, appearing faithfully on the bulletin board every Thurs-

year, it suggests hard work, persistence, team work, and the final satisfac-

Athletics started early this year when Phoebe Moorhead, '24, won the 
tennis tournament again. Then came hockey, with Miss Feaver to coach us 
for a week, and the hard-fought inter-class games. An individual cup was 
awarded for the first time this year, being presented to Helen Sargent at 
the hockey dinner. The basketball season began a little earlier than usual, 
followed by Track-Day, the last, but by no means least exciting event in our 
year's program. 

The Life-saving classes were resumed, and under the instruction of 
Esther Holbrook and Frances Fowler several more girls became certified 
life-savers. It was voted that life-saving should be an organized sport, 
counting a third of a point toward numerals. 

Miss Diall instructed a Junior class in fencing during the winter, and 
we have hopes of including archery and shooting in our list of organized 
sports. In fact, we even dare to hope for competition with other nearby 
colleges in the near future. 

All this has cost money, but we've managed to pad our little income by 
selling sandwiches at the Campus "dorms." It was worth the effort, but we 
hope that next year increased membership in Athletics will put us on a 
sounder financial footing.

Field Hockey this year started with enthusiasm for Miss Feaver, and 
wound up with excitement over the tie game. But these, of course, were 
only the high spots. In between, the players worked hard improving their 
game, directed by Miss Diall and Miss Feaver. 

For the first time, an individual Hockey Cup was awarded this year 
by vote of the members of the four teams. At the annual Hockey Dinner it 
was presented to Helen Sargent, '25.

matches, and they began at 9.

Informal basketball practices were held for two weeks before the 
Christmas vacation, but regular practice started January 7. There fol- 
lowed a week of general practice, a week of class practice, then two weeks 
of practice games. These were followed by two strenuous weeks of class 
and special practices, with classes scrambling to get the Assembly period, 
and even 8 o'clock was a sought-after time. 

In the match games, as in the practice ones, each class was given a 
chance to match strength with each other class, and the rivalry was 
spirited before the cup was finally awarded to 1925. The individual cup 
was awarded to Helen Sargent.

With the new dignity of its position as a recognized sport, the Life 
Saving class was resumed with enthusiasm this fall. Under the instruction 
of Frances Fowler, Mate, and Esther Holbrook, Captain, supervised by 
Captain Jack Wallace of the American Red Cross, thirty Simmons girls are 
now certified life savers, having passed the requisite tests at the Big Tree 
Swimming Pool, in Cambridge. Moreover, we sent a goodly representa- 
tion to the All New England Championship Meet in January. 

We wish in particular to thank Miss Diall and Dr. Hilliard for their 
unflagging interest in our efforts.

"BUBart be % Mxt Hates" 

Wise folks always tell us 
To count our blessings. 
And, four words from the wise 
Being sufficient — 
Here goes. 

First and foremost comes 


Who came early 

And stayed late 

And never grumbled 

And did all the dirty work 

The Editor didn't want to do. 

And then there's 


Who put the "sense" in censor, 

And most of the literary value in MlC. 

And then there's all the other 
99 4 yioi)% pure good natured souls 
Like Ruth Spaulding 
Who snapped or posed, 
And typed and drew 
Luscious cuts. 

And speaking of cuts, we hereby 

Solemnly swear 

That without 


Mic would never be 

The thing of beauty and a joy forever 

That it is. 

And if 

We've omitted anybody — 
We didn't mean to. 
Anyhow —

Freshman Frolic — ages ago, before '24 acquired the aplomb that nine 
sets of final exams and one Junior Prom bring. We sent home for our small 
sister's rompers, or took a large hem in our own most infantile frock, and if 
we weren't blessed with curly hair, we spent hours trying to acquire it — 
and then it rained. 

Remember what a good boy Connie Bouck was, even if her hair wasn't 
bobbed then? And how we all adored Agnes with black curls down her 
back ! Of course it wouldn't have been a real party either, without Sarah 
Curtis' jig. We played drop-the-handkerchief, and the other games we 
used to play before Responsibility descended upon us. And wasn't it fun? 
Almost worth braving Freshman Physics and its allied terrors again !

Afternoon sunshine pouring through the Refectory windows upon long 
tables that were gay with daffodils and yellow ribbons — tables that pres- 
ently groaned with chicken patties and other good things to eat : such was 
the setting for '24's Sophomore Luncheon. The entertainment for the 
occasion consisted mainly of a stage version of a thrilling detective story 
by Stephen Leacock ; but the biggest piece of detective work was that done 
by '24 itself, in detecting once for all that it was a CLASS. Speeches, and 
lustily rendered songs, and the proud anticipation of class rings, and the 
long eager rows of loyal Sophomores — all served as clues, and led to the 
overwhelming discovery that '24 was — well, that it was our '24 !

"O'er the dew bespangled grass 
Trips the lovely Amaryllis 
Daisies bend to let her pass 
Thrushes praise her with their song." 

We sang, and woke the Seniors. Then — 

A blast from the trumpets — make way, and make way ! 

Today we are crowning the Queen of the May. 

Do you see her? She's coming, to welcome the Spring 

Wjth her pages, and ladies, and Agnes the King. 

From her lilac-hung bower Queen Eleanor smiles, 
Her dancers have come to her over the miles, 
Here is Scotland, here's Ireland, and Russia, and France, 
Greece, Rome, even Holland, to play and to dance. 

— and then — 

dancers stopped and dried their dew- 
bespangled feet — and maybe Eleanor 
O'Connor and Agnes Broward forgot 
their dignity, too, and ran with the 
rest of us to those most attractive 
tables. For the May was ushered in, 
and the Queen crowned, and anyway, 
one must eat.

Clipped from the Boston Evening Transcriber, October 21, 1922. 

A wedding of great interest to student circles was solemnized this 
afternoon when Miss Marian Twenty-Six was joined in matrimony to Mr. 
Libby Twenty-Four at the home of their mutual god-parent, Simmons 

The bride was exquisitely gowned in a white satin creation, and wore 
a veil of real lace, while the groom, tall, dark, brilliantined according to the 
latest Vanity Fair, presented a ravishing figure. 

Although the family of Twenty-Six has recently moved here from 
parts unknown, the bride has become a prominent member of the younger 
set, and the wedding marks a union of great social importance. 

The groom, who is a promising scion of the influential family of 
Twenty-Four, will be remembered as the brother of Mrs. Jo Twenty-Two, 
nee Agnes Twenty-Four, whose wedding was the social event of the 
season of 1920.

Oh, 'twas early in the morning 
On the twenty-fifth of May, 

When we Juniors towing Seniors, 
Went off gaily for the day. 

Toward Nantasket we were headed, 
And we swore a mighty vow 

That the boxes that we carried 
Would be lighter soon, than now. 

Soon the good ship Betty Alden 
Held the hectic hungry mob, 

And the singing that was heard there 
'Stonished every stalwart "gob." 

After viewing the Leviathan 
We arrived; and full of pep, 

Proved that as a crowd of eaters, 
Twenty-four could keep its rep. 

Hardly had the needful hour 
Dragged along, till most of us 

Donned a bathing suit and shivered. 
Others waded — much less fuss. 

Then that Paragon of Parklets 
Opened doors unto our horde. 

We were jolted, bounced and tumbled, 
Too hilarious to be bored. 




Sloaty rode a roller-coaster 

That got stuck up near the sky, 

And she lost her last lone hairpin 
As the clouds went whirling by. 

Then we gathered up the stragglers ; 

Seniors didn't want to go, 
And they all looked at the Wind Mill 

With expressions of deep woe. 

But the watchful little Juniors 
Piled them on the boat again. 

Somehow we weren't quite so hungry 
As that morning we had been. 

And when that long day had ended, 
All we Juniors, every one, 

Vowed that never, in our history, 
Twenty-four had had such fun.

f>£ttuir IfnuBpfoarming 

Of course '24 has always modestly admitted that she's the "... est" 
class in Simmons, but when it came to Senior Housewarming, (being out of 
hearing of the neighbors), she just naturally forgot the modesty part and 
crowed — with reason. For Senior Housewarming was just the kind of a 
party that 1924 knows how to have — the "barrels of fun," Lucinda at the 
caldron brewing mystery, and Connie and family furnishing comic relief 
in their car of a well-known make. 

Jay and Libby made us homesick for the old hit — and we got it, too. 
Sarah jigged, of course, and those Red Haired Gals presented a lively 
demonstration of what makes a song popular. Doughnuts, cider, and the 
cremation of Sam McGee. And then, suddenly, a touch of sadness, the first 
presentiment of June not far in the offing, as we grouped in South Hall and 
sang Pals by the light of our two hundred candles.

Ye lord of the manor was a merrie old soul, 

And a merrie old soul was he. 
He called for his lords, and he called for his ladies, 

And he called for jollie companie. 

Ye folks at the feast with a boar were fed, 

And a roasted old boar was he. 
They delighted in the food, and they hark'ed to the songs, 

And they laughed at the players three. 

Ye jesters of the court played many a good prank, 

And each a good jester was he. 
They gorged with plum pudding, they tasted sweet mistle,

B>tutottt (&nuernm?nt Party, 1023 

Come to think of it, every Student Government Party has been an im- 
pressive affair since our advent at Simmons four long years ago. But our 
Junior Student Government Party somehow assumed an especial dignity 
and solemnity. 1923 was relinquishing the helm to 1924 — We were Seniors 
at last! We were very conscious of the responsibilities of our last year 
when the honored of us stepped forward to receive their flowers ; and when 
President Lefavour had finished his words of encouragement we were 
sure that our carefree days were over forever and anon. 

There was a certain something about lobster salad, ice cream and the 
things akin to them, however, that made for a more facetious frame of 
mind. We outdid our competitors in the race for "seconds" and it was only 
at step-singing that we remembered our impending dignity. Then, as the 
Seniors marched out singing Alma Mater, came the realization that Com- 
mencement was close upon us, and that for a year Simmons was to look to 
us for the steady hands to steer our student craft.

The 'Steps, 

And many upturned faces 

Of them that love 

The Steps ; 

A symbol — 

Of our poor climb, perhaps — 

Something that pulses, intangible, 

From you to me. 

A tie, 

The strife of day forgot, 

Cooled in the shades of dusk, 

Softened by a song. 


The lengthened shadows fuse 

All colors to a gray. 

A trembling silence 

When Melody has died. 

Alma Mater — 

The somber marching file 

Of Seniors in the lead, 

Hushed, contemplative. 

The thought: 

May we be worthy of those 

Who come to love 

The Steps.

Who ever heard of "This" as a title for a Minstrel Show? But then, 
who ever heard of such a minstrel show, anyhow, as '24's? All those who 
were lucky enough to see this "seven wonders of the world" creation, as 
displayed in this boisterous success, agree that posterity will have to travel 
some to produce anything better. 

That famous hit, "Soup," still rings in our ears on occasion, and the 
capers cut by "Eve" kicked up an awful dust. Jay and Libby haven't lived 
down their fame to this day (for further reference, see Senior Housewarm- 
ing, this volume) ; and neither have Cally and Faith, the "Gold Dust 

"Spring Onions" — a tearful play produced by "Romie" and Mary, fol- 
lowed most appropriately by "The Two Dusky Tears," in the persons of 
Connie and Marj, and then those old Southern ditties sung by the Min- 
strelers, with Cinder's masculine boom — well, every bit of it was one gale 
of laughter. And then Clementine finished us off, rendering us completely 
helpless with her artistic vamping of that honorable and worthy gentleman, 
George Washington, known in private life as "Rosie." Alexander Napoleon 
Pershing, at the central vantage point, intercepted all forward passes and 
side plays between Dottie and Rosie, scoring considerable on his own ac- 
count. Of course he didn't fool us a bit, because who but Agnes could pro- 
duce so realistic an accent ready-made? 

To cap the whole event, our mascot made his first public appearance, 
life-size, and was greeted with applause appropriate for the chief per- 
former in the affairs of that super-lucky class of '24.

'Twas the night before Prom Night at dorms and at Pete ; 

Juniors anxiously wondered what gentleman neat 

They could haul as their partner the next night for Prom, 

For Bill had refused, and they couldn't reach Tom, 

And Frank was engaged, and Horatio was ill, 

And Algernon, everyone knew, was a pill. 

So all that remained for these wild women fair, 

Was to ask room-mate's brother. They flew to prepare 

A tactful request for his presence next night 

That wouldn't reveal he was her tenth "invite." 

'Twas the night of the Prom at Hotel Somerset, 
And poor little "Junior" had done naught but fret; 
For room-mate's fair brother had never replied 
To the tactful request. Could it be he had died? 
But "Junior" dressed up in her most festive gown 
And borrowed access'ries from all her home town, 
And sat down to wait for the escort to come, 
While weak from excitement she counted the sum 
Of minutes that passed without any sign, 
When suddenly — "Look, who's that standing in line? 
That one with the flowers? An Arrow Collar lad. 
'Tis room-mate's big brother !" Hoorah and be glad ! 
Noiv, Seniors, does this sound familiar?

Dr. Varrell Presents Address to Instructors' Club Entitled 


"What I like best about London is its similarity to Boston. The streets are laid 
out with the same charming system, but there is one device in London to complicate the 
situation which we do not have in Boston. In Boston when you leave Washington Street 
and wander around the labyrinth for a while and then come back somewhere near the 
place you started, it is still Washington Street. Not so in London. If you leave the 
Strand in an unguarded moment, when you get back it is Fleet Street, and before you 
get used to it under this nom de plume it has suddenly become Ludgate Hill, and for 
no reason apparently except that it happened to fall in with Ludgate Circus. It is 
well known that people do strange things at circuses, but you would hardly expect that 
a respectable street would so lose its head as to forget completely its name. It is my 
opinion that the moral effect of circuses has been very bad for London. These circus 
places are all over the town. I was there in the winter, so I saw no actual circus per- 
formances or wild animals, but it is very evident that the circus is the chief form of 
amusement for the people of London in the summer. 

"Under most of these circuses there are subway stations. Take Picadilly Circus, 
for example. The Picadilly station has all the advantages of Park Street, Dudley 
Street, and Sullivan Square combined. You can wander for days here, going up and 
down, through tunnels and crossing tracks, without the slightest idea of how it is all 
going to turn out. They take your ticket when you go out, if you are fortunate enough 
to find the exit, instead of when you go in. I heard of a man who lost his ticket. He 
was a familiar figure for years wandering about the station. He finally pined away 
and died, and his family had to resort to Habeas Corpus proceedings against the 
Company in order to have him present at his own funeral. 

"As a historian, I was much interested in Trafalgar Square. Here I was told a 
famous battle took place between Napoleon and Nelson. It was here that Nelson 
climbed upon the tall shaft which is still to be seen there and shouted: 'England expects 
every man to be on the job.' In the midst of the engagement Nelson fell off the shaft 
and was killed. That night Napoleon telegraphed to Malmaison as follows : 'Dear 
Josephine — Expect me home tomorrow. These devilish shopkeepers have licked me.' 

"Not far from Trafalgar Square is Buckingham Palace, the modest little home 
of the king; the same little house that his father and grandfather before him lived in. 
The king is a very modest man, I judge. I hung around a good deal to get a look at 
him, but he doesn't go out very much. He likes to stay at home and putter around 
the house. The only time I saw him was when he rode over to the State House to 
see how his government was getting on. And even the king seems to have the circus 
habit. He rode in a great circus wagon disguised as a circus rider. It was a beautiful 
parade. The only thing lacking was the wild animals and I was told these had been 
put ud for the winter in the Zoological Gardens. 

"The State House has no gilded dome like ours, but it has a great square tower 
in which there is a Big Ben alarm clock to call the members of Parliament to after- 
noon tea. 

"Opposite the State House is Westminster Abbey. This would have been very im- 
pressive to me if it had not been so cluttered up with gravestones. The weather in 
England is so cold and rainy that everyone who can afford it likes to be buried indoors, 
and the Abbey seems to be the most popular place. I was brought up not to walk on 
graves so I could not get around very much or see much of the Abbey. 

"% was informed that one of the suburbs of London was called Chelsea, so I 
naturally wanted to see it. But it was very disappointing. There were no foundries 
or foreign copulation. The bus driver said something about a Mr. Carlyle who used to 
live there, but he thought he had moved recently to some other part of the city. I did 
not see him. I believe he used to run some sort of a tailoring- establishment. 

"Arjart from the streets and subways, the greatest difficulties I had in getting 
about London was with the language. I could read it in print, but I could not sneak 
it and I could not understand it. The language we speak in America is called English, 
but it is not the same kind of a tonprue that they speak in England. 

"There are two institutions in London, however, which go far to make the Ameri- 
can feel at home, the American Embassy and the American Bar. At the former they 
treat you with everv courtesv. and at the latter they treat you far better than vou are 
treated at home. The last thing that a returninc American does is to go to the Em- 
bassy for his pass-port, and then to the American Bar for his last taste of England."

Corn: All right, I'll wear that then. Now I s'pose I've got to take a bath. (Goes to 
mirror) Oh, dear, my hair is a mess. It really should have been washed. (Re- 
proachful glance at roommate, which passes unnoticed) I wonder if I would look 
better if it were curled a little? (Long pause. Glance at roommate) Yes, I'm 
sure it would look much better. But I can't curl it myself. (Pause) I wonder 
if anyone has time — (pause.) 

Haz (Throws down pen with air of early Christian martyr) : Oh, I'll do it. Go take 
your bath now, for heaven's" sake. 

Corn : I wonder if you could wash it, too. 

Haz: Yes, I guess so — TAKE YOUR BATH! (She gets out soap, towels, slippers, 
bath-mat, etc., and arranges them for Corn, who has gone to closet for disrobing 
purposes. Maud inspects dress.) 

MAUD : Corn, this dress really should be lengthened. 

Corn: Yes, I know it; Hazel said so last week. 

Maud: Well, I'd better do it now. I think I'll have time. 

Haz: I don't doubt that! 

Maud: Acidity! (Sits down on only corner of bed that's clear of clothes and begins 
to sew busily.) 

Corn (Now in bathrobe) : Oh, darn! 

Chorus: Now what's the matter? 

Corn: Oh, darn, oh, daaarn! 

Maud: Well, you're hardly giving us any information. 

Corn : I promised to get those programs printed and leave them at the Dorms on my 
way in town, but I forgot all about 'em. I wonder if anyone has time — (Ambles 
out, soon returns, followed by Minnie, Madge, and Wisteria. Stands in center of 
room giving directions to her galley slaves.) 

Cyn (From a safe distance) : Anything I can do? 


1924 :: :: :: MICROCHAOS 

Haz: I should say so! Polish these shoes. Cornie, for heaven's sake — TAKE YOUR 
BATH! (Pushes her out door; Cornie shouting, further directions at Minnie, 
Madge, Wisteria, and Cyn.) 


Corn: Say, has anybody seen my gloves? I couldn't find them yester — 

Maud: You need something more than gloves on you just now! Here's your dress. 
Hurry up and try it on, 'cause it'll have to be pressed. 

Corn (Opening bureau drawer): Hang! 

Chorus: Now what? 

Corn : I haven't any clean clothes. I forgot my laundry. It's over at 57. 

Haz : I'll get it. The water for your hair's cold, anyway. 

Madge: Corn, do you want this line the same size, etc. — (Corn stands enveloped- in 
bathrobe and despair, giving instructions to workers, while Cyn, biologically 
minded, holds forth on the neisseria of the streptococcus, which are inclined to 
influence the zygasaccharamyces.) 

Ha)z (Puffing in) : Mrs. M. says you didn't send your laundry last week, so you'll 
have to climb back into the same clothes you had on. 

(Com dresses with difficulty, tries on dress, exit with Hazel. Conversation in room 
punctuated by howls from shampoo-headquarters. Return of the native with drip- 
ping hair. Hazel follows, brandishing towel.) 

Haz: Sit down, woman, sit down. I'm not going to climb up on a step-ladder. (Corn 
sits comfortably, dripping water on completed programs.) 

Haz (After vigorous rubbing of aforesaid hair) : All right, that's dry. C'mon in and 
let me curl it. 

(Ten minutes later) 

(Enter Curled Cornie and Hazel.) 
Haz: Wait till I comb it out. STAND STILL! 
Corn: Are the programs done? (Turns around.) 
Haz: STAND STILL, I said. 
Corn: Ouch! 

Haz: Well, if you'd hold your head still, I wouldn't brush your nose. 
Corn: Are the programs done? 
Minnie: Almost. (Enter Maud with dress.) 
Maud : Here, try this on now. 

(All concentrate on getting Cornie into dress and shoes. Hazel gets out coat, hat, 

rubbers, etc. Minnie picks up programs.) 
Corn : Somebody count those and see if there are a hun — 

Haz: Here, put up your foot. How do you s'pose I can put your rubbers on? 
Maud : Stand up. I'm holding your coat. 
Cyn : Here's your gloves. They were under my bed. 
Min : Here are the programs. 

Haz: Here's my umbrella. Hustle up, it's 5.15 now. (Exit Corn, at the rate of five 
miles a term.) 

(Sighs and murmurs of relief from those within room. Suddenly, sound of foot- 
steps on stairs.) 

Haz: Ye Gods! She's coming back. (Rushes to door.) What's the matter? 

Corn (Out of breath) : I can't remember where I was to meet her. I'll have to find 

her letter. Somebody look in my desk. It may be on the dresser. I think it's in 

my notebook. 

(Everyone searches, turning drawers upside doivn and hauling dresses out of 

closet. At_ last it is found-— in the pocket of the coat which Cornie is wearing. 

Exit Cornie with, calm, and serene brow. Others collapse on nearest section of

THE MICROCOSM :: :: :: 1924 


Being a Treatise on Pursuing the Wily S.B. to Its Lair 

School of Household Economics 

Take the first Ipswich Street car that comes along this week and alight in front 
of the Woman's Educational and So Forth. Now, this system is expensive, so get out 
your allowance. Buy a complete luncheon. The food, being cooked by Simmons 
standards (no, not Dormitory standards) may get by even with the instructors of the 
Foods Dept. Your expense is only just beginning. Charter a noiseless taxi, and en- 
train with the aforesaid luncheon en route for college. On reaching 300 the Fenway, 
spirit your edibles into the elevator, which you have previously bribed Joe to run for 
you and your basket, and ride blissfully to the third floor. There glide into the 
cooking lab., lay out the sumptuous feast according to the picture in the book. Every- 
one will be entranced! Miss Dow will faint with surprise! Your degree is assured — 
if you've got the cash to stand the financial strain. 

School of Secretarial Studies 

You may have to learn to run a typewriter. Yes, you'd better. But shorthand — 
that's easy. All you have to do is to get a lot of Congressional Records. Don't buy the 
up-to-date ones — you won't need those. Cut out the speeches starting "Mr. President, 
Mr. Chairman, or Gentlemen of the Committee." Pick those with big words, and nice 
standard phrases; for example: "Mr. President: I just want to say a word and I shall 
be very brief. I agree with the gentleman from Alabama ..." Make a perfect copy 
of each of these speeches and hand one in every day. Try to have it remotely resemble 
the one dictated. Don't have it exactly like it; it wouldn't look natural. Don't hand 
one in on Wednesday — that's letter day. If you don't know enough shorthand to take 
the letters you'd better get them to send you downtown to work. If they send you, 
rush to the first employment agency, hire a girl who has never worked before to take 
the job. Then go to the matinee. Better sit in the orchestra so your friends won't 
spot you. Keep this up as regularly as the Daily Dozen, and an S.B. will positively 
attach itself to you. 

School of Library Science 

The most important thing for you to do is to learn to make your periods the cor- 
rect size. A cataloging card looks positively debauched if they are too large, and if 
they're too small — horrors! That's worse, if possible. Remember, a period in the 
hand is worth two in the inkwell. And you'd better learn to read. If you don't want 
to bother with that, learn to report intelligently on what you haven't read. It has the 
same result. But the most essential requirement is an air of nun-like calm while 
charging books in Library A. Don't act as though there were a fire when someone says, 
"My name is Clara Smith." Collect yourself! Remember with an effort of will, that 
though the girl may be insane enough to call herself "Clara Smith" her name is really 
Smith comma capital C period. Then stamp the date. If this is done calmly, the 
Library of Congress will soon claim you for its own. 

School of General Science 

The directions for this school are so simple as to be hardly worth mentioning. 
Just keep an eye on your instructors. If you observe any signs of an intention to flunk, 
return to Ihem the scientific knowledge they gave to you by playing around with ex- 
plosives and poisons until you've killed him off. Repeat as needed. Soon your path- 
way will be free of these minor obstacles and you will blast and poison your way 
merrily to an S.B. 

School of Social Work 

To really succeed in the Social Service School, start early, preferably Freshman 
year. Pick out for a roommate the most feeble-minded girl you know and room with 
her all four years. By the time your field work comes around, your specialty is all de- 
cided. You amaze all observers with your exhaustive (not to say exhausted) knowl- 
edge of the habits and manners of the feeble minded. There is. however, a serious draw- 
back to this scheme. In a moment of carelessness about the future, you might get an- 
noyed enough with your roommate to kill her off, Dainlessly, we hope. If this inclina- 
tion can be overcome, the method described is infallible in procuring a degree. Its only 
substitute is to consort with Ye Editor. One day with her gives data on lunacy that 
will be sufficient for a lifetime! 





(With the Usual Apologies to Kipling) 

Gwendolyn Gubbins, S.B., 
Belongs to the Academy, 
And I muse o'er my flunks till in gloom I'm most sunk 
Just from thinking of Gwendolyn G. 

Gwendolyn Gubbins, S.B., 
Has never yet studied, you see, 
But from Joe to the Dean, she reigns o'er them supreme- 
Oh, she's dear to the Powers that Be ! 

It isn't from famed industry 
Nor grinding like you or like me, 
But a line that's so smooth, even teachers can soothe, 
And they all fall for Gwendolyn G. 

So if YOU'D have a stand in, you see, 
Just YOU emulate Gwendolyn G., 
You practise a line that is strong and yet fine — 
I've tried it. It's hopeless for me. 






Scene — Brookline Avenue, in front of South Hall. 
Time — A legal holiday. Afternoon. 

(Silence, punctuated by the periodic arrival of Chestnut Hill cars. Julius, Marullus, 
arid a Rabble of Citizens emerge from one of them. The Rabble, on familiar 
grotmd, enter South Hall. Julius pauses, uncertain. Marullus, noting, addresses 
him. ) 















What! Seek ye, youth, to pass these portals barred, 
Without the mark of Alma Mater thine? 
Speak out, what college art thou? 

Harvard, sir. 

Where is thy monocle, thy walking stick? 
What dost thou with thy best apparel on? 

In truth, sir, in respect of study, I 
Am but, as one would say, a Medic — 

And wherefore art not at thy task at work, 
What dost thou here, at 321, today? 

Tis that today we Meds make holiday. 

I, being blessed with date with beauteous Pompain, 

Am come — 

What, know you Pompain? Ah, 
The times, I've climbed yon elm and there 
Have clung the livelong day to see my fair 
Glide, in her rubbers, stately 'cross the Dump ! 
And do you now strew flowers in her way? 
(Julius nods assent) 

I can but warn you — 'Ware the fourth of May! 
(Exit, within) 
(Pompain appea>s on iron balcony) 

The balcony doth sway. Ah, me — she speaks! 
Yet she says nothing. What of that? 'Tis usual! 

What man art thou beflattened 'gainst yon elm? 

Hear me, Pompain! 

Mine eyes told truly. This 
Indeed is Julius, him for whom I hunger. 

(aside) Ah, "Hunger" said she and methinks 'tis true- 
Yon maiden hath a lean and hungry look! 
(aloud) Pompain, wilt sup with me this night? 

Ah, no, for chef hath promised steak! 

Wilt dine with me tomorrow? Say not nay. 
(A bell is heard within.) 

It is the bell, the silencer of talk, 
Now Julius dear, begone. But come again 
And on the evening of the coming day, 
With steak forgotten, and with hunger wild, 
Will I with you go dining. Now away. 
The watchman's footsteps do resound within. 
Besides, it's cold and my apparel's thin. 


1924 :: :: :: MICROCHAOS 


Scene — The same. 

Time — The following night, following dinner. 

(Pompain has been deposited within.) 
Jul: {exploring busily in his pockets.) 

Ah, for one dime, one little, little dime, 
Wherewith to travel to the street called Park! 
But no, there is none! Thou, fair Pompain, thou 
Hast cost me all my cash and credit, too. 
A taxi did I have to summon. Why, 
Oh, why would not a street car carry you? 
Then did you tell the driver, "Hie thee now 
Unto the Copley Plaza Hostelry. 
'Tis only there that Simmons girls may dine." 
My early hopes of Ginters died in me 
And all my courage oozed. I only cried, 
"The Copley, driver, haste." He hasted. There 
We soon arrived. You ordered — ordered 
'Most everything in sight from caviar 
Unto the honied sweetness of ice cream! 
I dined on expectation — of the bill — 
It came! Alas, for hope and cash. We left 
In yet another taxi, and but now, 
Empty of pocket, somewhat stunned of brain, 
I stand here cured — for know, O Pompain, know — 
The man once stung will find another bee 
To be his honey. Now farewell, adieu. 
No Harvard student e'er will do for you — 
Go seek ye out a multi-millionaire. — 
He'll feed you! Turn now, feet — to Harvard Square! 
(Exit, sadly and dejectedly.) 

(Silence in front of 321, punctuated by the melancholy lowing of a mournful dumpcoiv.) 

Mary W. — "Well, personally, I don't like arms." 
Miss Blunt (helpfully) — "Do you think they are harder to get out of?" 

Dr. Gay — "The scene in the tomb is extremely gloomy, with a general 
rattle of bones in the background." 


An Ode to Janitors, Here, and Everytvhere 
When dorm girls want to hammer, saw or do some work that's rough, 
When 'lectric lights won't function and the stage has called their bluff 
At being sure nuf carpenters, who comes and does the trick 
With a bang and smash and pounding, but without a single kick? 

Oh, it's William here and William there, and "William, go away, 
These twelve o'clock encounters shouldn't spoil a perfect day." 
When Dramatics starts to play, though, when Dramatics starts to play, 
Then it's "Thank you, dearest William," when Dramatics starts to play. 

We go into the laundry and we wash and wash like mad, 

And then we find the boiler has gone all to the bad, 

We cuss and even swear a bit and then we up and shout — 

"Where's William? He can fix it. Don't tell me that he's out!" 

Oh, it's William this and William that, and "William wait a while, 
You really can't wash windows when I'm wearing but a smile." 
But when the boiler's busted or the dryer's on the bum, 
Oh, it's "Thank you, dearest William" when the boiler's on the bum. 


THE MICROCOSM :: :: :: 1924 


These I have loved : 

Hand clasps, and smiles familiar, 
Voices that laugh ; a fleeting, friendly look ; 
Songs sung beneath the shadows ; a new book 
Of whimsey thought ; and convocation day ; 
And games ; and the magical sway 
Of day dreams ; the refect'ry in festive attire ; 
Tea, and a holiday crackling tire ; 
The Dump, and fairy laces of frost ; 
And sunset fingers tracing across 
The sky ; a bough 'cross my window bent ; 
The Campus sending up the scent 
Of earth in the Spring ; and figures that dance 
In May ; then, classes themselves, and a glance 
Into realms undreamt . . . 

Dear memories.

A Newspaper for the young person does 

not necessarily mean one

may be of another type — a limitless fountain of

Such a paper is the 

Every young person requires more than the friv- 
olous. He needs a well balanced diet. In the 
Transcript may be found Education as well as 
Sports, Church News as well as Theatrical, Home

nature whatever — and best of all it is all placed 
before the reader in proper perspective.
